Submerged laser ablation is used to obtain multicomponent, patterned alkanethiol monolayers on template-stripped gold. In a decanethiol (DT) self-assembled monolayer first squares of mercaptoundecanoic acid (MUA) and then lines comprising of hexadecanethiol (HDT) were prepared. The patterned monolayers are imaged by scanning electron microscopy (see figure).
