Cryogenic microshaping of viscoelastic polymer with single point diamond tool

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Viscoelastic polymer, such as polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), is extensively used as a substrate material of the micro fluidic chip. Generally, it is difficult to machine PDMS which performs adhesion and softness at the room temperature. However, applying the cryogenic machining which focuses on the glass transition phenomena of viscoelastic polymers, accurate cutting of PDMS becomes possible. In this study, in order to machine PDMS more efficiently and precisely, feasibility of cryogenic microshaping with non-rotational cutting tool was investigated experimentally.
