Abstract
Laser manipulation technique was applied to patterning of single nanoparticles onto a substrate one by one in solution at room temperature. Individual polymer nanoparticles were optically manipulated to the surface of glass substrate in ethylene glycol solution of acrylamide, N,N'-methylenebis(acrylamide), and commercial radical photoinitiator. An ultra violet (UV) laser beam was focused to the nanoparticle, which led to generation of sub-μm sized acrylamide gel around the particle. The polymer nanoparticles were incorporated into the polymerized gel and fixed onto the substrate. A single gold nanoparticle was optically trapped and moved to the surface of the glass substrate in ethylene glycol. Additional irradiation of the UV laser light induced transient melting of the particle, resulting in its adhesion to the substrate. By the use of the present methods, arrangement of individual polymer and gold nanoparticles on any pattern was achieved.
