Keywords: This CVD modiﬁcation is expected to be a valuable way of modiﬁcation because of its simple operation, Self-modiﬁcation low cost and short time consumption. Results indicate that the high temperature calcination and the Superhydrophobic moderate temperature CVD modiﬁcation can drastically improve the stability of the surperhydrophobic PDMS surfaces through controlling the morphology and the surface chemical composition. The as-prepared Transparent Rainproof glass surfaces are capable of bearing heavy rains, keeping the
