Paper Abstract

We have developed a novel method for patterning nanoscale composite hydrogel materials on silicon through electron beam lithography. Gold particles were introduced into poly N-isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAam) patterned by e-beam lithography. By including BAC, the polymer can covalently bond to the colloidal gold nanoparticles. Such composites can be stable for long periods of time. We describe the structure, quality, and properties of the resulting patterned hydrogel-nanoparticle composite films.
