Large-Scale Patterning and Electric Test of Silver Nanowires by Microfluidic Hydrodynamic Focusing
The special electric characteristic of nanomaterials is one of their spectacular features. To fully explore the electric excellence of nanomaterials, it is mandatory that we assemble and connect the nanomaterials into a closed circuit and test its electric property preliminarily. Here, we design, fabricate and characterize an economic microfluidic device for a simple way to manipulate and align silver nanowires onto electrode arrays, and thus test its electric characteristics easily. This approach provides a feasible way to characterize nanomaterials in large scale and also an efficient method for mass integration of nanodevices.
