Self-Organization of a Hybrid Nanostructure consisting of a Nanoneedle and Nanodot



original image

A special materials system that allows the self-organization of a unique hybrid nanonipple structure is developed. The system consists of a nanoneedle with a small nanodot sitting on top. Such hybrid nanonipples provide building blocks to assemble functional devices with significantly improved performance. The application of the system to high-sensitivity gas sensors is also demonstrated.
