Development of electrochemical imaging methods using micro-electrode arrays and microfluidic networks
Distribution of molecules over space and time drive a multitude of macroscopic and microscopic biological processes. There is a need to design novel imaging techniques that can map molecular distributions with spatiotemporal resolution. In this thesis, new electrochemical approaches to provide spatiotemporal imaging are presented. The bulk of this work utilizes high-density platinum micro-electrode arrays fabricated using complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) fabrication techniques as well as microfluidics and carbon-based electrodes fabricated using soft lithography fabrication techniques. ...
