Abstract

We present a new method called "Lock Release Lithography (LRL)" that provides a means for the high-throughput production of particles with complex 3D morphologies and composite particles with configurable chemistries. We demonstrate a diverse set of functional particles that can be formed using this method. Particles made using LRL can originate from a broad range of precursor materials and may contain variety of functional entities including nucleic acids, proteins, quantum dots, beads, and living cells. This technology may provide a powerful means to mass-produce functional units for microfluidic operations, filtration systems, and tissue engineering constructs.
