Soft Lithography

Soft lithography is a method of creating micro devices or three-dimensional structures by moulding and embossing an elastomer on a mould. Microfluidics, which are widely used in cell biology, are the most common devices made with this technique. The most commonly used elastomer in this technique is PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane), a soft bio-compatible elastomer with high thermal stability, high chemical stability, low toxicity, chemically inert, insulating properties, transparency to UV and visible light, low cost, ease of moulding, and mechanical flexibility and durability.
