Abstract

There are a wide range of permanent mechani- cal attachment methods available, but very few meth- ods which are truly temporary and removable. One practical solution to this problem is a plastic mate- rial called Velcro. However, the common type of Velcro is not suitable for mating micromechanical structures, nor is it suitable as a potential electrical interconnect between integrated circuits.
