Journal Club February 2010: Mechanics of Patterned and Structured Interfaces

Welcome to February 2010 Journal Club!  This month, I look forward to a lively discussion on the mechanics of structured and patterned interfaces in which geometry is used to tailor adhesion.  Much of the work in this area has been inspired by a variety of animals and insects that have feet covered with small structures (often hierarchical and sub-micrometer in size at the end) that allow them to strongly adhere to a broad range of surfaces.  The best known example is the Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko), which can achieve an adhesion force much greater than its body weight and can quickl
