Transfer and control of the orientation of 3D nanostructures fabricated by nanoskiving

Abstract

This communication describes the transfer and stacking of slabs of epoxy containing nanostructures fabricated by nanoskiving. Removal of the sacrificial layer and epoxy matrices produces 3D nanostructures via control over the position and alignment of each sequential layer. The process uses mild etchants and transfers the nanoskived features without wrinkling or damage. We demonstrate the utility of this method of transfer with aligned and intersecting nanowires and arrays of nano-holes and crescents.
