Abstract

In this experimental work, a single SU-8 based glass microfluidic device is fabricated by maskless lithography and indirect bonding technique. Dyed water is prepared and used as working liquid. A CMOS camera is used to record the surface-driven microfluidic flow of dyed water in the fabricated SU-8 device. Leakage-free surface-driven microfluidic flow of dyed water is recorded. Nanofluidics is the next level of fluid mechanics after microfluidics towards miniaturisation of fluidic devices. In future, this experimental work may be helpful to fabricate the nanofluidic sensors in nanotechnology.

Keywords: SU-8, Maskless lithography, Indirect bonding, Dyed water, Nanofluidics
