Building on the multiphoton absorption polymerization (MAP) method that limits making 3-D micro structures to only plastic, Fourkas and his group are able to deposit metal and other materials on specific regions of these structures. The group demonstrated their technique by depositing copper on a plastic coil to create a micro inductor one-tenth as long as the diameter of a human hair. Fourkas and his group published their research in the Feb 15 issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
