An easy, inexpensive, high-throughput, and scalable one-step microlithography technique to construct a superhydrophobic surface is introduced. The resulting surface can be very precisely designed to have specific dimensions. The dependence of the hydrophobic behavior on the surface dimensions is analytically investigated and modeled.
