We experimentally demonstrated formation of electrically conductive structures by modifying native polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) with femtosecond laser. By irradiating femtosecond laser pulses to native PDMS, black structures with electrical conductivity were formed. Analyses using X-ray diffraction (XRD) show that the formed structures were composed of β-silicon carbide (β-SiC). Our technique enables the spatially selective formation of β-SiC on the surface of PDMS, leading to open a novel route to develop a simple method to fabricate flexible or stretchable MEMS devices with SiC microstructures.
