Description
Aim of the proposed project is a) development and establishment of insect-inspired capillary nanostamping (IICN) as next-generation contact nanolithography, b) replacing state-of-the-art lithographic and synthesis protocols requiring use of sacrificial templates or time-consuming self-assembly steps by IICN and c) significant IICN-driven acceleration and upscaling of the production of extended nanostructured systems. To meet these aims, IICN stamp design will be inspired by insect feet depositing small secretion droplets through arrays of hairy contact elements on counterpart surfaces. Monolithic IICN stamps extending cm2 will consist of spongy ink-filled substr...
