Sacrificial Template Replication: Fabrication of arbitrary three-dimensional suspended hollow microstructures in transparent fused silica glass

Glass is a versatile material, but it is very difficult to structure. Specifically, the generation of hollow channel structures as required, e.g., for synthesis-on-a-chip applications, has been very difficult to achieve. Here we demonstrate a novel approach to glass structuring enabling an entirely new real of complexity in terms of structure geometries and design of freedom.

Gender Balance is Everybody's Responsibility

I (Olaf Wiest, OW) was invited to contribute a blog post to the International Women’s Day on the Nature Research Chemistry Community and am very happy to do so because I firmly believe in the importance of “Balance for Better” . However, I am a white male with a different experience and thus turned to Taylor Quinn (TQ). She is a fourth-year graduate student in the group who has through a lot about this, for help.
