Reversible deformations in laser-written polymeric microstructures: New platform for sensing and micro-actuation applications (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

In this talk we will present results on stimuli-responsive reversible deformations in polymeric microstructures fabricated using direct laser writing in pre-polymers (DLW-PP) technique. This microstructure behavior can be employed for micro-actuation applications in MEMS as well as designing new passive chemical sensors for microfluidic applications via hybrid (additive-subtractive) microfabrication technique. In this talk we will present our recent results in this field introducing few new concepts: a novel all-optical readout chemical sensor suitable for microfluidic applications, micromechanical components acting as flow control mechanisms based on bi-polymeric structures and solvent-sensitive micromechanical plug for microchannels.
