The microfluidic technique employed for the fabrication of metal resistors that are subsequently utilized as temperature sensors and fluid flow sensors is discussed. The method allows deposition of precision thin film metal patterns on large objects. The two steps of the technique are creation of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microchannels and sealing of PDMS piece against the surface of interest to form enclosed microfluidic channels. The technique is applicable to the patterning of silver and gold on various substrates.
