Controllable Direct "Writing" of Gold Nanostructures for Integrated Nanobiosensor Applications Conference Paper uri icon


  • We report a new scanning probe based method to achieve a controllable direct "writing" of metallic nanostructures. By scanning a gold-coated scanning probe tip on a single crystal silicon surface in ambient environment, nanosized gold dots and wires were directly formed as a result of direct gold material transfer from scanning probe tip onto silicon surface. Such gold nanostructures could be readily interfaced with silicon microelectronics for the development of integrated nanobiosensor systems. © 2007 IEEE.
