Nano/micro-patterns made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) that are biomimetic in nature, were fabricated on silicon wafer using capillary force lithography. Patterns with three different aspect ratios were investigated for their adhesion and friction properties at nano-scale using AFM, and for friction at micro-scale using mirco-tribo tester. The patterned samples exhibited superior tribological properties, both at nano and micro-scales when compared to that of the non-patterned PMMA thin film.
