Template-assisted fabrication of salt-independent catalytic tubular microengines.


A simplified template-assisted layering approach for preparing catalytic conical tube microjet engines based on sequential deposition of platinum and gold on an etched silver wire template followed by dicing and dissolution of the template is described. The method allows detailed control over the tube parameters and hence upon the performance of the… (More)
