Course Instructor
SC532: Micro- and Nanofluidics - Technology and Applications
This course will provide a broad overview on all aspects of micro- and nanofluidic technology starting with the history over one decade of microfluidics and describing the various fabrication technologies for miniaturized devices in polymers, glass, silicon and metals. A main focus is the application of microfluidic components in biotechnology (e.g. separation techniques, PCR, Lab-on-a-Chip etc.) and chemistry (e.g. micro reactors, micro mixers etc.) and a special microfluidic tool box suited for these applications. Commercialization strategies and business models of microfluidic companies will be covered as well as the hot topics of "killer applications", and the need for standardization. The aspect of becoming even smaller and the challenges and limitations of nanofluidics will have a special focus. The course will conclude with hands-on tests using microfluidic devices, including a water and milk analysis with chip based capillary electrophoresis.
SC699: Polymer Microfabrication
This course provides attendees with an introductory overview on the fabrication methods and applications of polymer based microsystems, including an examination of fabrications methods such as photolithography, LIGA, laser ablation, casting, hot embossing and injection molding. The course covers an overview on polymer materials, the methods used in optical patterning, and replication methods for high-volume fabrication. Based on a variety of practical examples in microoptics, BioMEMS and medical devices, you will be able to understand the basic principles of the fabrication methods as well as identify possible solutions for your specific application area. The course will provide a practical approach to microfabrication techniques and the necessary equipment.
SC1014: Microfabrication Technologies for Microfluidic Devices
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the field of microfabrication technologies for microfluidic devices made out of glass, silicon and polymers. The course will cover a wide range of existing materials and manufacturing technologies and describes the complete development cycle of a microfluidic device from the design to the ready-to-use device. The course will also provide an opportunity for researchers who already have experience with silicon based microsystems to extend their knowledge to non-silicon based systems, which are finding more and more applications in microfluidics. After a brief historical review of microfabrication methods, we will examine material choices for microfluidic applications, and compare microfabrication methods for silicon, glass, and polymers. These basic structuring methods are supplemented by reviewing back-end-processing techniques for bonding, dicing and surface modifications. The course concludes with information on cost-modelling and design advice.
