Abstract

Two techniques for transferring biomaterials using a pulsed laser beam, matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE) and MAPLE direct write (MDW), were developed. MAPLE is a large area vacuum based technique suitable for coatings and MDW is a localized deposition technique capable of fast prototyping of devices. Both techniques have the ability of transferring large molecules in different forms and in preserving their functions.
