Abstract

In this paper, a PMMA (poly-methyl methacrylate) microchip, which has shallow dams of about 5 μm gaps, was fabricated and evaluated. Accurate dimension control of the micro-channels was realized by not only optimizing hot embossing conditions but also employing low temperature plasma activated bonding.
