Annotations This article discusses a study done between two different types of nanomolding fabrication techniques as well as how design parameters of the hairs affect adhesion. Ultimately their preliminary tests suggest good results. While this article is currently outdated, it shows some early positive results for mimicking gecko adhesion. It relates to my topic by focusing on the mechanics of adhesion with a focus on use in future wall-climbing and surgical robots.
