Researchers Create New Techniques for Complex Micro Structures for Use in Sensors and Other Apps


July 12, 2012

News thumbnail of cube University of Maryland chemistry professor John Fourkas and his research group have developed new materials and nanofabrication techniques for building miniaturized versions of components needed for medical diagnostics, sensors and other applications. These miniaturized components--many impossible to make with conventional techniques--would allow for rapid analysis at lower cost and with small sample volumes. Full Story
