Electrohydrodynamic Patterning of Colloidal Crystals

Web Published:
11/30/2011
Description:

Researchers at Princeton University have developed a new method of producing materials with micron and submicron patterns. Such materials are important in numerous applications, including photonic materials, high-density magnetic data storage devices, microchip reactors, and biosensors. Princeton is currently seeking industrial collaborators to commercialize this technology.

 

The Princeton method combines the well-known photochemical sensitivity of semiconductors with electrical-field-induced assembly to create ordered arrays of colloidal particles with tunable patterns.

 

Patent protection is pending.
