Electrothermal Manipulator for Thin Films

Dr. Hyunjoon Kong has developed an electrothermal manipulator for fragile, thin films. The device allows thin materials to be moved without comprising their integrity and is a more versatile method than existing ones. It can be used in the transport of cell sheets and thin electronics. It can also be used in both wet and dry conditions. It may be used for biomedical tissues and cell sheets, as well as ultra-thin electronic materials.
