Abstract

The controlled growth of optically functional nanometer scale materials was analyzed. The use of nanofabrication techniques to generate catalytic patterns was demonstrated for the directed growth of optically functional and crystalline nanomaterials. It was found that these patterns can be fabricated in parallel, with different symmetries and pitch and over large areas. The patterning methods were used as a general approach that can be applied to the growth of other types of nanometer-scale materials from catalytic dots of different materials.
