Abstract

original image

Polymeric fibers and helical and bow-tie particles are generated by A. Camposeo, D. Pisignano and co-workers on page 1304, using the combination of two-photon lithog-raphy and microfluidics. The two-photon continuous flow lithography enables the creation of polymeric micro-objects with 3D features and sub-diffraction resolution. The particle synthesis throughput is improved, thanks to the combination of polymerization by multiple laser beams under continuous flow.
