Well-Positioned Metallic Nanostructures Fabricated by Nanotransfer Edge Printing


  • This research was supported by NSF of China under No. 20674096, 20733001, and 50773092.


We describe a simple and experimentally convenient method to print and position metallic nanostructures on silicon wafer using nanotransfer edge printing (nTEP), which is a combination of thin-film metal deposition, nanotransfer printing (nTP), and edge lithography. The shape, width, and aspect ratio of the metal nanostructures can be precisely tuned during the fabrication process.
