Controlling the behavior of single live cells with high density arrays of microscopic OLEDs
MetadataShow full item record
Microarrays of OLEDs are used to optically control the locomotion of individual cells in real time. Close contact (<2 μm) between OLEDs and the aqueous cell culture medium is facilitated by high-performance thin-film encapsulation. This work paves the way for using OLED light sources to control and study neuronal activity and cell signaling with extreme spatial and temporal resolution.
