Multi-biofunctional properties of three species of cicada wings and biomimetic fabrication of nanopatterned titanium pillars

The cicada wings have drawn keen interests for biomedical device applications due to their superhydrophobic, self-cleaning and bactericidal effects. In this work, the authors present a systematic evaluation of bactericidal and cytocompatible properties of the cicada wings. They also present biomimetic nanofabrication of the patterned array of titanium nanopillars using electron beam lithography, which was characterized using different microanalytical techniques. The outcomes of this research can help to engineer an optimum nano-patterned surface to enhance the bioactivity and bactericidal effect on biomedical devices. The patterned pillars were fabricated using the TESCAN MIRA3 FEG-SEM.
