This paper reports the development of a novel force measurement device based on polymeric nanopillar arrays. The device was fabricated by a process combining nanosphere lithography, oxygen plasma treatment, deep etching and nano-molding. Well-ordered polymeric nanopillar arrays with various diameters and aspect ratios were fabricated and used as cell… CONTINUE READING
