Abstract

A highly ordered wafe-scale monolayer of alkanethiol-encapsulated gold particles was fabricated using the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method. The effects of the particle concentration and the solvent were experimentally studied. The results demonstrate that a low particle concentration of 0.06-0.3 mg/ml resulted in a highly ordered monolayer of gold particles. Furthermore, use of chloroform as the solvent produced a more stable particle suspension and a more ordered monolayer than the use of benzene.
