Abstract

This paper reports a newly developed scanning probe microcontact printing (SP-μCP) method to generate submicron patterns. It uses a scanning probe with an elastomeric tip to transfer chemical or biological materials onto a substrate. SP-μCP combines the advantages of microcontact printing and scanning probe microscopy technologists. The design and fabrication of the scanning probe is described in this work. The functioning of the probe is demonstrated by generation of sub-500 nm ODT lines on a gold surface using SP-μCP method.
