Fabrication of Two- and Three-Dimensional Structures of Nanoparticles Using LB Method and DNA Hybridization

Abstract

In this paper we describe fabrication methods for two types of nanostructures, two- and three-dimensional arrays of gold nanoparticles. Large-scale and high-ordered monolayers of alkanethiol-encapsulated gold particles were fabricated by using Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method. Three-dimensional nanoparticle arrays composed of gold nanoparticles of two different sizes, which were encapsulated by complementary thiol-capped DNA oligonucleotides, were fabricated by using DNA hybridization. DNA hybridization occurred upon mixing these particles, which resulted in the assembly of three-dimensional nanostructure of gold particles. Scanning electron microscopy observations and UV spectroscopy measurement were performed to confirm the construction of the nanostructures.
