Fabricating Metallic Nanoclusters for Use in Photonics, Medical and Electronic Applications
15 Jan 2013

NanoInk has harnessed the ability of Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®) technology to deposit materials with nanoscale precision, to develop a technique for fabricating metallic nanoclusters. In this application note, NanoInk’s nanolithography systems were used to pattern sub-micron sized droplets of a mixture of metal salt in P2VP-PEO onto a SiO2 substrate. The printed surface was then heat treated to decompose the polymer and oxidize the metal ions, creating arrays of metal oxide nanoclusters. It concludes that the DPN fabrication process is a reliable method for creating clusters of nanomaterials in regular arrays on a silicon oxide surface.
