Abstract
Despite the rapid growth of microfabrication technologies over the past decades, many desirable microstructures remain difficult or even impossible to create, especially when the structures are composed of multiple components that feature different materials that must be arranged in a highly specific, 3-D pattern. We have developed aqueous photoresists that can be used in combination with different techniques for nanomanipulation to create such structures. Multiphoton absorption polymerization can be used to create unsupported polymeric microstructures that can be nanomanipulated to place them in any desired position and orientation. Nanomanipulation techniques can also be used to place micro- or nanoscale components in desired locations in three dimensions, after which they can be immobilized photochemically. This toolbox of techniques offers the capability of creating a broad range of new structures and devices featuring polymeric, inorganic, metallic and biomolecular components.
