Paper Title:
Overview on Roles of Wettability and Elasticity of Soft Matters for Emerging Technologies
  Abstract

The fundamental aspects of the wettability and the elasticity of soft matters, particularly, functional polymer solutions, lipid membranes, and biological cells in the development of new technologies are overviewed from the basic principles and underlying physics. The key concept is how to control interfacial interactions between solid substrates and soft matters through surface modification. Two representative examples are demonstrated to discuss the underlying physics behind the pattern and domain formation; one of them is multi-dimensional generation of heterogeneous organic arrays and the other is micro-patterning of red blood cells on lipid membranes
