Title: A surface with stress, extensional elasticity, and bending stiffness

Abstract

We demonstrate that the surface of a commonly used polydimethylsiloxane formulation (PDMS, Sylgard 184) treated by ultraviolet ozonolysis (UVO) has significant surface stress, considerable extensional elasticity (the “Shuttleworth Effect”), and surface bending elasticity.
