Tip-arrays for polymer pen lithography (PPL) were prepared from poly(dimethyl siloxane), poly(methyl methacrylate), poly([methyl methacrylate]-co-[butyl methacrylate]), and poly(3-mercaptopropylmethylsiloxane) to explore the role of polymer mechanical properties on the force-dependent ink transfer. Ink was transferred successfully for all materials except poly([methyl methacrylate]-co-[butyl methacrylate]), and it was foundthat the relationship between force and feature edge length is governed by the mechanical properties of the polymers that comprise the tip-arrays.
