  • For the transfer of 2-D gold nanoparticle arrays between different substrates, we have developed a new method using thermo-responsive poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (pNIPAAm). By tuning the degree of surface hydrophilicity of pNIPAAm between 5 °C and 50 °C, we demonstrate the transfer of arrays extending over micron-scale areas with preservation of array properties.
