Abstract
Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we will demonstrated scaled up version of the coatings leading to military relevant prototypes.
