The contact sensing method for dip-pen nanolithography was discussed. Dip-pen nanolithography is capable of generating sub-100 nm features using molecular diffusion of chemicals from a scanning probe tip to a writing surface. The results show that this method has high sensitivity and is suitable for dip-pen nanolithography applications with large probe arrays.
