Generating Micro- and Nanopatterns on Polymeric Materials by Eduard Arzt

Generating Micro- and Nanopatterns on Polymeric Materials


Generating Micro- and Nanopatterns on Polymeric Materials by Eduard Arzt

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.


* one reviewer quotes: This is one of the most current subjects of physical chemistry of interfaces, which has numerous practical implications

About the Author

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. Eduard Arzt is Scientific Director and Chairman at INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrucken and holds the Chair for New Materials at Saarland University. He obtained his PhD in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Vienna, Austria, in 1980. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Cambridge, he led a research group at the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart. From 1990 to 2007, he was a Director at the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research, Stuttgart, and Professor for Metal Physics at the University of Stuttgart. He has been Visiting Professor at Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology and maintains strong links to the international materials community.
