Polymeric microelectromechanical systems
Tiny microelectromechanical systems have rapidly permeated many areas of chemistry and the life sciences. Many of the early studies focused on working with glass. Steven Soper, Sean Ford, Shize Qi, Robin McCarley, Kevin Kelly, and Michael Murphy of Louisiana State University describe the advantages of instead using plastic substrates, which are more versatile and easier to machine than glass.
