  • The great potential of {pi}-conjugated polymers, especially polyacetylene, polyarylenes, and poly(arylenevinylene)s, as components in optical displays, sensors, rechargeable batteries, electromagnetic interference shielding, and microelectronics is well recognized. This paper presents a protocol for patterning the surface of insulators with electrically conductive polymers. The pattern is formed on a gold electrode surface via electro-oxidation of heteroarene monomers. An adhesion layer is used to bond the surface of the conducting polymer pattern to the surface of an insulator. The pattern is then developed by etching away the gold. The approach is illustrated with polypyrrole and is applicable to a wide range ofmore » substituted polyheteroarenes and insulating substrates.« less

  • Flow patterns with both recirculating and unidirectional characteristics are useful for controlled mixing and pumping within microfluidic devices. We have developed a fabrication process that converts injection-molded polymer chips into devices that demonstrate induced-charge electroosmosis (ICEO) effects (1,2) in AC fields. Polymeric insulating posts are coated with metal to produce a nonuniform zeta potential under an applied electric field. Induced flows are analyzed by particle image velocimetry. Stable, recirculating flow patterns are discussed, along with their potential to produce well-characterized and reversible streamlines for on-chip mixing in chemical separation and synthesis devices. Asymmetric conductive features can bias the flow direction,more » generating unidirectional pumping in an AC field. This pumping approach will be discussed in comparison with DC electrokinetic pumps we have studied.« less
  • This patent describes a method of manufacturing a film of a copper oxide based superconducting material in a desired pattern. The superconducting material comprises an alkaline earth metal, copper, another metal component and oxygen in which method a superconductor precursor material comprising copper oxide, alkaline earth metal fluoride and another metal or metal oxide is provided on a substrate in the form of a film, applying a diffusion barrier formed of a material selected from the group consisting of gold, silicon and aluminum and oxides of silicon and of aluminum against water and oxygen in a pattern complementary to themore » desired pattern on the film and subsequently heating the film with the patterned diffusion barrier to an elevated temperature in the presence of water and oxygen such that the film not covered by the diffusion barrier becomes superconducting.« less
