Chi-Mon Chen, Chang-Lung Chiang, Chien-Lin Lai, Tao Xie and Shu Yang Buckling-Based Strong Dry Adhesives Via Interlocking Advanced Functional Materials 23
A strong dry adhesive based on interlocking of buckled shape-memory polymer (SMP) pillars is designed and investigated. The strong adhesion originates from pillar interweaving and indenting with each other, as well as the elastic energy stored in the deformed SMP pillars at room temperature. The adhesion strength and anisotropy can be tuned using the detachment temperature and pillar spacing.
