Electrowetting assisted air detrapping in transfer micromolding for difficult-to-mold microstructures.

As a widely applicable process for fabricating micro- or nanostructures, micromolding in atmosphere would require the removal or minimization of air-trapping in mold cavities so as to fill the liquid prepolymer fully into the mold for generating an exact polymer duplicate. This has been difficult, if not impossible, especially for a mold with high aspect… CONTINUE READING
