Abstract

In this paper we report new polymer-based microvalves operated by pneumatic/thermopneumatic actuation. In this microvalve, polymer monolith, which is formed inside microchannels using photopolymerization technique, acts as a flow stopper. The proposed microvalves can easily achieve size miniaturization, batch fabrication, and easy integration with other microfluidic components.
