Uniform polymeric microfibers of prescribed lengths were synthesized in microfluidic devices using two different approaches - valve actuation and pulses of ultraviolet (UV) light. The more versatile valve approach was employed to demonstrate control of the length of the microfiber as a function of the frequency of valve actuation.
