The possibility of shaping the soft matter into complex three-dimensional structures is becoming very important in the realm of nanotechnology. Microelectronic components, flexible electronic circuits, optical-waveguides, microlenses, 3D scaffold for tissue engineering, biomaterials and high resolution biosensor are just few examples of possible applications of 3D components. Many different approaches have been developed and tested for materials manipulation and microfabrication purposes. In the following chapters it is reported a detailed description of how the pyro-electrohydrodynamic (EHD) works and how it is possible manipulate liquid and polymeric materials in non-contact mode through an electrode-free approach.
