Abstract

We report a rapid laser-based method for structuring polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) on the micron-scale. This mask-less method uses a digital multi-mirror device as a spatial light modulator to produce a given spatial intensity pattern to create arbitrarily shaped structures via either ablation or multi-photon photo-polymerisation in a master substrate, which is subsequently used to cast the complementary patterns in PDMS. This patterned PDMS mould was then used for micro-contact printing of ink and biological molecules.
