Abstract
A groove-shaped array with average 25 μm interval, 25 μm wall thickness, 75 μm depth and a columnar array with average 30 μm side length, 25 μm interval, 43 μm depth are processed by 1064 nm picosecond laser on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) surface at room temperature. The water contact angle of modified PTFE surface can reach 167°, which show super hydrophobic surface of PTFE is prepared. It is observed super hydrophobic surface reflects metal luster underwater through the glassware when super hydrophobic PTFE entirely immerses in pure water. The experiment conducts super hydrophobic surface will enhance intensity of reflection of visible light underwater, which is due to total internal reflection of super hydrophobic surface und erwater.
