Abstract

image

A “Micro to nano” dewetting strategy is presented to generate multi-direction-controlled, precise-positioning 1D assemblies of conductive silver (Ag) NPs based on a superhydrophobicity-directed assembly strategy. Electrons can transport along linear NP assemblies and their behavior is sustained by coating a coaxial protecting layer outside the nanostructures. This new concept might open new routes for NP-based nanoelectronic circuit fabrication.
