Abstract:ABSTRACTLaser-induced optical forces are used to guide and deposit 100 nm - 10 µm diameter particles onto solid surfaces in a process called laser-guided direct-writing. Nearly any particulate material, including both biological and electronic materials, can be manipulated and deposited with micrometer accuracy. Potential applications include three-dimensional cell patterning for tissue engineering, hybrid biological and electronic device construction, and biochip array fabrication
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
