Multi-responsive hydrogel structures from patterned droplet networks

Abstract:

Responsive hydrogels that undergo controlled shape changes in response to a range of stimuli are of widespread interest for use in microscale soft robotics and biomedical devices. However, existing fabrication methods cannot easily produce patterned multi-material structures. This thesis describes a novel approach for producing 2D- and 3D-patterned, multi-material, multi-responsive hydrogels, on a μm to mm scale, templated by droplet networks. Droplet networks are assemblies of aqueo...
