It has been demonstrated that cell adhesion on biocompatible materials is modified when the surface of the material is structured instead of being totally polished [1-3]. An efficient way to texture surfaces is using the foci of a microlens array and a direct write laser technique [4]. Due to the short focal length of the microlens, they can be damaged by expelled material during ablation. In previous works we have demonstrated the capability of using the Talbot effect to distance the object… CONTINUE READING
