Micro Contact Printing

Micro Contact Printing

Microcontact printing (or μCP) is a form of soft lithography that uses the relief patterns on a master Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamp to form patterns of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of ink on the surface of a substrate through conformal contact. Its applications are wide ranging including microelectronics, surface chemistry and cell biology.

Famous quotes containing the words printing and/or contact:

    The printing press was at first mistaken for an engine of immortality by everybody except Shakespeare.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    It can be demonstrated that the child’s contact with the real world is strengthened by his periodic excursions into fantasy. It becomes easier to tolerate the frustrations of the real world and to accede to the demands of reality if one can restore himself at intervals in a world where the deepest wishes can achieve imaginary gratification.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)
