Template assisted self assembly Mechanism of TASA Aqueous particle dispersion Capillary force
Result and discussion Effect of cross sectional shape Relation between yield and concentration The self-assembly yield is defined as the ratio of the total dot-patterned area to the properly assembled area.
SEM images of each cross- section before resist removal. Shape A, B and Shape C were fabricated by SF6 and CF4 dry etching, respectively.
Relation between a cross- sectional profile of a template pattern and a yield of self-assembly (the concentration of particle dispersion: wt%) Relation between concentration of particle dispersion and a yield of self-assembly.

LSPR principle Noble metal nanoparticles exhibit a strong UV-vis absorption band that is not present in the spectrum of the bulk metal. This absorption band results when the incident photon frequency is resonant with the collective oscillation of the conduction electrons and is known as the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). E(λ) = extinction (viz., sum of absorption and scattering) N A = area density of nanoparticles a = radius of the metallic nanosphere e m = dielectric constant of the medium surrounding the metallic nanosphere λ = wavelength of the absorbing radiation ε i = imaginary portion of the metallic nanoparticle's dielectric function ε r = real portion of the metallic nanoparticle's dielectric function χ = 2 for a sphere (aspect ratio of the nanoparticle )
LSPR characteristics These mechanisms are: resonant Rayleigh scattering from nanoparticle labels in a manner analogous to fluorescent dye labels nanoparticle aggregation charge-transfer interactions at nanoparticle surfaces local refractive index changes This approach has many advantages including: – a simple fabrication technique that can be performed in most labs – real-time biomolecule detection using UV-vis spectroscopy – a chip-based design that allows for multiplexed analysis
LSPR applications Sensor adsorption of small molecules ligand-receptor binding protein adsorption on self- assembled monolayers antibody-antigen binding DNA and RNA hybridization protein-DNA interactions

Conclusions Self-assembly nanoparticle pattern formation method can be realized more than 90% onto 200 x 200 dots. Dot and line patterns of gold nanoparticles in diameter of 60 nm were transferred on a flexible PDMS substrate. LSPR sensitivity will be possible by controlling patterns of the assembled nanoparticles. In the future, it is expected that this method will realize novel MEMS/NEMS devices with nanoparticles patterns on various 3D microstructures made of various materials via a carrier substrate.
