We review recent research on nanostructure and biological physical structure models of spider
silk. We introduce the biomimetic methods and bioinspired technology about how to fabricate the silk. We
also impose great importance on wettability of natural and artificial spider silk according to recent development
and potential functions in new promising fields.
Keywords: Bioinspired materials, micro- and nanostructure, orb-weaving spiders, silk bio-mimicry, spider silk, wettability.
