    UV photo-oxidation was first applied to fabricate superhydrophobic polyimide (PI) films in combination with fluoroalkylsilane (FAS) modification. During prolonged UV irradiation, commercial flat PI films evolved to form unique micro/nanostructures. Meanwhile, the root mean square (RMS) surface...
