Abstract

A wide range of applications which involve organic crystalline materials require the metallisation of low-molecular-weight compounds. Conventional lithographic techniques used in silicon fabrication technology use high-temperature processing methods which are unsuitable for organic materials. Gold/titanium bilayer and shadow-masking techniques were found to provide suitable solutions to the problem of metallisation of these materials and allowed fabrication of a surface acoustic wave (SAW) device with (–)-2-α-methylbenzylamino-5-nitropyridine (MBANP) as substrate.
