    Abstract

    The influence of various parameters on the spray-coating of thin films of poly(l-lactide) (PLLA) was investigated. The optimized processing conditions were used for deposition of the biodegradable polymer on arrays of SU-8 microcantilevers. The resonance frequency of the cantilevers before and after spray-coating was measured which allowed the characterization of the mechanical properties of the coatings. Initial experiments on enzymatic degradation of the PLLA were performed.
