BPN523: Bio-Inspired Manipulation of Nanoplasmonic Architectures via Active Polymers


While technology relies on components defined in a fixed position on a rigid substrate, nature prefers soft substrates, and allows components to move significantly during morphogenesis. Taking inspiration from biological fabrication, we have developed a technique, called active polymer nanofabrication, which utilizes active (smart) polymers to create complex nanoplasmonic substrates designed for molecular detection.
