Functional surfaces with specific wetting properties for high quality optical components or mass products with esthetic requirements (e.g. easy to clean lenses, anti-fog bathroom mirrors) are of tremendously increasing interest. An effective realization of superhydrophobic and hydrophilic wettability demands a thorough characterization of structural, wetting, and optical properties. This thesis is hence focused on the development of a comprehensive measurement and analysis methodology.
