Buckling instabilities in soft materials, specifically wrinkling, have led to the formation of unique surface patterns for a wide range of applications that are related to surface topography and its dynamic tuning. This article summarize the fabrication of various wrinkle structures on a PDMS elastomer using 3D-streching method and application for SERS active surface on these structure with a metal deposition.
