Abstract

Mussel adhesive protein analogs are biologically-derived materials that possess unique adhesion properties. We have demonstrated thin film growth of DOPA modified- PEG block copolymer mussel adhesive protein analogs using a novel laser processing technique known as matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE). The main functional groups of the mussel adhesive protein analog are present in the MAPLE-transferred film. These novel polymer thin films have numerous medical, electronic, and marine applications.
