Abstract

We propose and verify a facile and robust method for generating hierarchically structured microspheres with wrinkled nanopatterns using droplet-based microfluidics. The microspheres show high specific surface area
according to the wrinkled nanostructured surface, and fluorescent properties resulting from the introduction of fluorescent nanoparticles. Therefore, they can be applied in many fields, such as coating materials, surface enhanced
Raman scattering (SERS), catalysis, separation and biosensing. This process shows advantages of high controllability of materials, precise control over size and uniformity of generated droplets; and the microdroplet production is fast, efficient and in single-step.
