The glass substrate is coated by the silica nanoparticle suspension using dipping or spin coat method and dried in an electric oven. The glass substrate surface is covered with nanoparticle thin layer and the transparent and tiny rugged surface can be produced on a substrate. It was experimentally confirmed to prevent dust adhesion by covering the surface of the glass substrate with nanoparticle. But the reason why the prevention of particle adhesion on nanoparticle coating substrate is not clear yet. Therefore the adhesion force between particle and substrate is measured by the centrifugal method and the relation between the adhesion force and the surface roughness is discussed from experimental and theoretical point of view. The measured and calculated results by Van der Waals force show that adhesion force decreased with the increment of the surface roughness. From the results, nanoparticle coating is very effective to prevent the dust adhesion on the substrate and the various application of nanoparticle coating can be expected.
