Abstract

A plasma lithography technique is developed to guide the self-assembly of colloidal quantum dots and other nanoscale building blocks, including fluorescent nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles, salts, and proteins. Plasma lithography enables the self-assembly of nanoscale materials onto soft and polymeric substrates with feature sizes as small as 100 nm.
