U.S. Patent: 7,375,404

Description
The ability to create devices such as biosensors, microarrays, and microelectromechnical systems (MEMS) requires facile methods to precisely control surfaces. Microfabrication techniques are routinely applied to create patterned inorganic surfaces with nanometer to micrometer scale resolution. However, traditional approaches such as photolithography, and microcontact printing have not proven particularly successful in bonding organic and biological materials to the patterned organic surfaces.

This invention is directed to methods for spatially and selectively depositing a polymer.
