Abstract

Here, we present liquid-ink based nanoscale deposition of commercially available silver nanoparticles onto defined locations on untreated silicon dioxide substrates. We monitor the flow of the ink from the cantilevers to the substrate using specially designed transparent cantilevers with a high spring constant (0.5 N/m) in an open geometry which prevents tip clogging that plagues both inkjet printing[10] and nanofountain probes[6, 11]. We discuss the deposition mechanism for the silver NP inks, including methods for creating nanoscale arrays, lines, as well as varying the size and shape nanostructures deposited with the silver NP based inks.
