Soft Lithographic Patterning of Spin Crossover Nanoparticles

Abstract

Microtransfer molding has been used to fabricate homogeneous micropatterns and nanopatterns of spin crossover nanoparticles of [Fe(NH2trz)](tos)2 over a large area. We show that the use of an aprotic solvent (n-octane) may lead to successful results. Very well organized micropatterns are obtained, showing spin crossover phenomenon. Dark field optical and AFM images and Raman microspectrometry results are reported.
