This letter describes the physics and application of an approach to transfer printing that utilizes targeted shear loading to modulate stamp adhesion in a controlled and repeatable fashion. Experimental measurements of pull-off forces as functions of shear and stamp dimension reveal key scaling properties and provide a means for comparison to theory and modeling. Examples of printed structures in suspended and multilayer configurations demonstrate some capabilities in micro/nanoscale materials assembly.
