Abstract: We demonstrate functional microfabrications generated using photocurable functional polymers. We synthesized photocurable silicon elastomers, which can be useful for high fidelity, nano-scale soft lithography. "Elastic photopatterns" generated by using the designed photocuarble silicon elastomers was presented. Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP) are produced by "molecular imprinting technique", which is a general protocol for the preparation of "synthetic receptor sites". We then used the MIP's system for functional pattern fabrications to improve the sensitivity of molecular recognitions. Those functional microfabrications are beneficial to develop actual devices with high performances.
