Postgraduate Research

Cong -wangThis project aims to develop novel microfabrication methods for Lab-on-a-Chip(LOC) systems to form functional 2D/3D structures such as integrated electrodes, pumps, valves and other actuation mechanisms using materials such as stimuli response polymer, self-assembly function layers, hydrophobic surfaces, metal and interconnects, the focus will be on integrated MEMS systems design and fabrication alone with the applications including bio/chemical/medical sensing and analysis. Elastic mechanical instabilities induced with optical properties of Luminescent/Fluorescence are combined together with micro-fabrication process to investigate the switchable optical patterns to photonic-sensors. Different elastic pattern surfaces will be fabricated and analyzed as well.
