Abstract

The feasibility of using electrically triggered hydrogels as components in microfluidic systems for biological applications is investigated. Hydrogels are fabricated using liquid-phase photopolymerization techniques and are subjected to differing voltages and temperatures to determine the time-response of their shape and volume change.
