High aspect ratio Parylene C micropillars formed by molding and ION-BEAM etching method
MetadataShow full item record
This paper represents the molding and plasma etching method for developing a high aspect ratio parylene C pillar array. The silicon mold was fabricated using the modified Bosch process. The parylene was deposited by chemical vapor deposition into the silicone holes, followed by the etching of silicon to obtain the transparent membrane of hollow parylene C pillars. The etching method was initialized by transferring the pattern on the hard titanium mask via standard photolithography, followed by titanium etching. The oxygen plasma ion-milling of parylene C produced the flexible pillars standing on the silicon substrate. Both pillar arrays were characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Arrays of micropillars could be applicable for measuring cellular forces or as the bioinspired platform with modulated surface chemistry.
