Formation of intricate nanostructures will require the ability to maintain surface registry during several patterning steps. A scanning probe method, dip-pen nanolithography (DPN), can be used to pattern monolayers of different organic molecules down to a 5-nanometer separation. An 'overwriting' capability of DPN allows one nanostructure to be generated and the areas surrounding that nanostructure to be fitted in with a second type of 'ink'.
