Adhesion between metals and polymers are rarely explored. For each type of polymer and metal combination, a customized adhesion method needs to be established- here is a case study for PDMS and Gold adhesion.

A process flow of resist-free nanostencil lithography technique that allows sub-micron metal patterningon a polymer substrate is established.
