We observe that microcontact printing is a tool used by physicist for many applications. For example, it is used to realize flexible electronics like :

  • flash memories
  • field emission device
  • touchless control interface
  • transistor.

It is also used during the layer deposition process. For example, in the case of atomic layer deposition or to metallize (electroless or not), µCP can be a powerful tool. Another application field is optics. Indeed, it is possible to fabricate micro lens or optical negative index components thanks to microcontact printing. Some optical effects are reached thanks to µCP like SERS (Surface enhanced Raman Spectroscopy).

It is also possible to realize some hydrophilic/hydrophobic pattern on different substrate for micro droplet manipulation.

For all these cases, the trend is to control the process at the wafer-scale. µCP is more and more a standard tool for physicist.
