Paper Abstract

Laser Induced Forward Transfer (LIFT) process has been utilized as a novel microfabrication tool for the printing of a plurality of organic and inorganic materials, both in liquid and in solid phase, with dimensions down to a few microns, on substrates such as glass, silicon and flexible polymers. LIFT is a direct-write method that can print viable bioinks including living cells in predefined 2D or 3D patterns. It offers many advantages over other direct-write techniques: It is contact-less, offers high spatial control (10-100μm) and is able to print a great variety of materials in terms of viscosity.
