Research over the last decade has led to the emergence of several powerful methods for micro/nanofabrication, with direct relevance to optics and optoelectronic systems. This talk summarizes some of our contributions to this field, through the development techniques that use (1) conformal phase masks for photodefining 3D structures with applications in photonic crystals, (2) rubber transfer stamps for integrating inorganic semiconductor materials on plastic substrates for solid state lighting, emissive displays and efficient photovoltaics, and (3) stretchable assembly platforms for controlled transformation of 2D precursor structures into well-defined, complex 3D architectures for optical MEMS. In each case, we review the basic operating principles and provide some examples of enabled applications in optics and optoelectronics.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
