Microfabrication of carbon structures by pattern miniaturization in resorcinol-formaldehyde gel.


A simple and novel method to fabricate and miniaturize surface and subsurface microstructures and micropatterns in glassy carbon is proposed and demonstrated. An aqueous resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) sol is employed for micromolding of the master pattern to be replicated, followed by controlled drying and pyrolysis of the gel to reproduce an isotropically… (More)
