Soft Materials and Bioprinting

  • Deborah Munro


A rapidly advancing area of MEMS is the fabrication of soft materials. These polymer-, paper-, and hydrogel-based devices have unique advantages as compared to traditional hard materials like silicon. They can be very low cost and fabricated without the need for expensive capital equipment by using molding techniques and bioprinting.
