Microstructures were fabricated on optical imaging fibers with a photopolymerization technique. Monodisperse polymeric microarrays were produced containing spots of 2.5 micrometers in diameter spaced 4.5 micrometers apart. Polymer microarrays were also deposited on other substrates by using imaging fibers for light delivery. The technique allows micrometer-scale photopatterning with masks larger than the desired dimensions.
