This work describes the fabrication of numerous hydrogel microstructures (μ‐gels) via a process called “surface molding.” Chemically patterned elastomeric‐assembly substrates were used to organize and manipulate the geometry of liquid prepolymer microdroplets, which, following photo‐initiated crosslinking, maintained the desired morphology. By adjusting the state of strain during the crosslinking...
