Direct writing and characterization of poly(p-phenylene vinylene) nanostructures
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-12)
We report the use of thermochemical nanolithography to convert a precursor polymer film to poly(p-phenylene vinylene) with sub-100 nm spatial resolution, in ambient conditions. The local thermochemical conversion is verified ...
Linear ripples and traveling circular ripples produced on polymers by thermal AFM probes
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-06)
We discuss the time and temperature evolution of the nanometer-scale surface undulations (ripples) produced by a heated atomic force microscope (AFM) tip scanning across surfaces of several amorphous polymers. During linear ...
Local wettability modification by thermochemical nanolithography with write-read-overwrite capability
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-12)
The wettability of a thin polymer film was modified twice by thermochemical nanolithography. By means of a first local chemical modification induced by an atomic force microscope tip heated to 110±20 °C, hydrophilic ...
