Microcontact deprinting: a technique to pattern gold nanoparticles.


A simple and general patterning technique for inorganic nanoparticles (NPs, e.g., gold NPs) is demonstrated, consisting of the selective lift-off of metal precursor loaded block copolymer micelles. The procedure works as follows: first, a topographically micropatterned polystyrene (PS) stamp is placed in contact with a substrate covered with hexagonally… (More)
