Generating Micro- and Nanopatterns on Polymeric Materials

by Eduard Arzt

Generating Micro- and Nanopatterns on Polymeric Materials Synopsis

New micro and nanopatterning technologies have been developed in the last years as less costly and more flexible alternatives to phtolithograpic processing. These technologies have not only impacted on recent developments in microelectronics, but also in emerging fields such as disposable biosensors, scaffolds for tissue engineering, non-biofouling coatings, high adherence devices, or photonic structures for the visible spectrum. This handbook presents the current processing methods suitable for the fabrication of micro- and nanostructured surfaces made out of polymeric materials. It covers the steps and materials involved, the resulting structures, and is rounded off by a part on applications. As a result, chemists, material scientists, and physicists gain a critical understanding of this topic at an early stage of its development.

About Eduard Arzt

Aranzazu del Campo is Minerva Fellow at the Max-Planck-Institut fur Polymerforschung (Mainz, Germany) and heads the independent research group Active Surfaces and Materials . She received her PhD in Chemistry from the Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnologia de Polimeros (Madrid, Spain) in 2000. She then joined the Max-Planck-Institut fur Polymerforschung as Marie Curie Fellow to work in the field of surface chemistry and nanotechnology. After a short stay at the Universita degli Studi di Urbino (Italy), she became Research Group Leader at the Max-Planck-Institut fur Metallforschung in 2005 (Stuttgart, Germany) and at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials (Saarbrucken, Germany) in 2008.
