Platinum tripods as nanometric frequency multiplexing devices

Author affiliations


Electrical and structural characterization studies of nano-particles are very important steps to determine their potential applications in microelectronics. In this paper, we address the crystallographic and electric transport properties of soft-chemistry-grown nanometric Pt tribranches. We report that Pt nanostars grown from the reduction of H2PtCl6 salt in pure oleylamine present a remarkable crystalline structure and deeply metallic character despite being grown under mild conditions. We demonstrate that such devices are able to operate at current densities surpassing 200 MA cm−2, actuating as highly compact frequency multiplexers in the non-ohmic regime.
