Abstract

We demonstrate here a PMMA-mediated nanotransfer printing technique for reliably transferring nanoscale building blocks and sequentially building purpose-directed nanostructures. The utilization of PMMA film as a mediator introduced several features to this transfer approach, such as high efficiency, fidelity, universality, controllability, and multilevel transferability. Various nanostructures, such as an SWNTs-on-SAM structure, high-density crossbar array of SWNTs, a hybrid n-ZnO nanowire/p-SWNT cross-junction, a gold nanostructure-SAM-gold sandwich structure, a zigzag array of SWNTs, and gold nanobowl array were generated with this transfer approach. A metallic-semiconducting SWNT cross circuit was built to demonstrate its potential application in fabricating nanoelectronic devices. This technique paves the way to generate various structures with homo- or heterogeneous nanoscale building blocks, which facilitates exploring their fundamental properties and building novel devices.
