Abstract

Conventional poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) soft lithography relies on photolithography for fabrication of micropatterned molds.. Here, we present an alternative method to fabricate microfluidic devices using microscale PLasma Activated Templating (μPLAT). The use of photoresist in soft lithography is replaced by patterned water droplets created using μPLAT. As a result, device fabrication is less time consuming, more cost efficient and flexible, and ideal for rapid prototyping. Furthermore, this method has unique features that are difficult to achieve using photolithography.
