Single photon fluorescent microlithography for live-cell imaging.


Using fluorescent dyes to trigger the polymerization of a commercial polyurethane resin allows a rapid fabrication of micrometer and submicrometer sized fluorescent structures by one-photon absorption. Here, we show that standard He-Ne lasers emitting at 632.8 nm can be used to start the photopolymerization and that very low laser power is required. This… (More)
