An article in  Advanced Functional Materials on functional microcapsules with unique configuration has been accepted for publication 
Multi-cored microcapsules with unique configurations are prepared by a single-step encapsulation technique that uses an optofluidic platform to efficiently and precisely encapsulate a specific number of emulsion droplets in photocurable shell droplets. The capsule structures are capable of isolating active materials and releasing them in a controlled manner using well-defined nanohole arrays or photothermal nanoscopic silver architectures on thin membranes.
