Abstract

In this paper, we describe a method to continuously fabricate microfibers with tunable physicochemical characteristics using a microengineered platform. By introducing active functional modulations, such as by switching the flow through the use of a digital control scheme, we produced microfibers along which diverse chemical compositions, structure (e.g.: hydrophilic and hydrophobic), gas, live cells and morphologies.
