Abstract

original image

Metallization and a resulting enhancement in the mechanical properties of periodic porous polymer microstructures via biofunctionalization is reported. The size and density of the gold nanoparticles are tuned by varying the polyamino-acid-deposition technique (solution-assisted or vapor-phase deposition) and the conditions of the deposition.
