    • Laser Polishing of Micro-Machined Microfluidic Molds 

      Smith, Bryce B.; Wolf, Dennis M.; Turner, Kevin T.; Duffie, Neil A.; Li, Xiaochun; Pfefferkorn, Frank E. (5th International Conference on MicroManufacturing (ICOMM 2010), 2010-04-05)
      The objective of this paper is to explore the effective-ness of using a pulsed 1064 nm wavelength Nd:YAG laser to polish micro-machined metal molds. Polishing is desired to reduce the surface roughness of Polydimethylsiloxane ...
    • Micro End Milling Polystyrene for Microfluidic Applications 

      Christ, Kevin T.; Smith, Bryce B.; Pfefferkorn, Frank E.; Turner, Kevin T. (5th International Conference on MicroManufacturing (ICOMM 2010), 2010-04-05)
      Microfluidic devices developed in research labs are often fabricated from poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) because techniques to manufacture devices via lithographic and molding techniques are well-established. However, ...
    • A Thin-Film Heat Flux Sensor Fabricated on Copper for Heat Transfer Measurements in Parallel Channel Heat Sinks 

      Jasperson, Benjamin A.; Pfefferkorn, Frank E.; Qu, Weilin; Turner, Kevin T. (5th International Conference on MicroManufacturing (ICOMM 2010), 2010-05-05)
      A combination of lithography-based microfabrication and micro end milling is used to manufacture thin-film resistance temperature detector (RTD) heat flux sensors on bulk copper substrates. The fabrication process uses ...
