Honeycomb Film

New materials of a unique structure with hexagonally arranged micro-pores

These are thin macromolecular films with micro-pores open in honeycomb patterns. The inner walls of the pores have a spherical shape with adjacent pores being open to each other, and it is also possible to individually create double-side-open, single-side-open, pillar, and microlens-array structures.

Production process based on self-assembly (dew condensation)

Micro water droplets self-assemble in an orderly structure as they condense and grow on the surface of a thinly spread polymer solution. Cells form when the solvents dry and the micro water droplets evaporate.
