#112 - (22b) Polymers as Functional Components of Micro- and Nanodevices (T8002)
This session will highlight research into developing and applying polymer systems as novel functional components of micro- and nanodevices. We seek submissions that apply polymer systems as coatings, actuators, recognition matrices, etc in micro- and nanoscale sensors, fluidic, and other devices. Of particular interest, biological and medical applications will be emphasized.
