A common photosensitive polymeric material used in semiconductor microlithography (diazo-naphto-quinone/novolak resist) was pattern-exposed with near-UV light to create carboxylic-rich areas on the polymer surface. The patterned surfaces were further functionalised via: (1) the anchorage of peptides for specific cell-attachment or cell-detachment functions; or (2) the diffusion of silicon rich chemical species to achieve the cell detachment. Pairs of antagonistic surface characteristics… CONTINUE READING
