We fabricated films of Au onto single crystal alumina (Al(2)O(3)(0001)) and nanostructured the surface using a high resolution focused ion beam (FIB) to remove specific regions of the film. The nanostructures consist of lines and orthogonal lines cut into the film, resulting in one- and two-dimensional islands of gold. When these films are heated above 300(More)
We report results relating to the thermal stability of nanoparticles and show a remarkable effect of nanostructuring of the metal. Au films are nanostructured by focused ion beam sputtering (FIB) to produce isolated areas of metal, which are imaged by atomic force microscopy (AFM). Images of the surface show that, if the islands are made small enough, the(More)
