    Abstract

    We present the controllable capillary folding of planar silicon nitride templates into 3D micro-structures by means of through-wafer liquid application. We demonstrate for the first time hydro-mechanical, repeatable, actuation of capillary folded structures via addition or retraction of water on demand
