Nanofountain probes for direct-write biological and functional nanoparticle arrays

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present a broadly-applicable nanodeposition tool, the Nanofountain Probe, for direct-write fabrication of functional nanoarrays using liquid molecular "inks". Models of the deposition process describing the effects of probe geometry, ink properties, and patterning environment on feature resolution will be discussed. Examples of nanopatterning of protein, DNA, and functional nanoparticle arrays for single-cell studies and nanoelectromechanical systems fabrication will be presented. Recent developments in the use of the Nanofountain Probe as an in vitro single cell injection tool will also be discussed.
