Abstract
Three-dimensional (3-D) microstructuring of photostructurable glass is demonstrated by using femtosecond (fs) laser for Lab.-on-chip, in other words, micro total analysis system (μ-TAS), application. The fs laser direct-write process followed by a thermal treatment and chemical etching in a HF aqueous solution produces true 3-D hollow microstructures embedded in the photostructurable glass. This technique is applied for manufacturing a microfluidic structure inside the glass. Mixing of two kinds of aqueous solutions is demonstrated in the fabricated structure. A freely movable microplate is also fabricated inside glass to control a stream of reagents in the microfluidics. To give additional functions to the fabricated microfluidics, selective metal plating of the glass i s performed by the fs laser irradiation in an electroless plating solution. This paper also discusses the mechanism of photostructurable glass modification by the fs laser.
