Opto Electronic Function in Metal Particle-Porphyrin Nanostructures based on Ferroelectric Nanolithography

A procedure for isolating porphyrins and peptides on atomically flat Au substrates has been developed.

D. Bonnell, M. Therien, W. DeGrado

The ultimate goal of producing functional nanostructures requires:

  • Understanding properties of individual molecules
  • Developing a fabrication process for device function
  • Obtaining opto electronic function in a complex structure

We have made progress on all three.

Device Fabrication Process

Deposit marker electrodes
Pattern ferroelectric substrate
Deposit nano particles by FNL
Deposit micro electrodes
React molecules onto electrodes
