Morphology Modification of Silver Microstructures Fabricated by Multiphoton Photoreduction
Abstract:We have investigated the morphology modification of silver microstructures fabricated by the multiphoton photoreduction process. The microstructures have been fabricated by a femtosecond laser under different irradiation time and repeated scanning numbers. Trans-4-[4-(dimethylamino)-N-methylstilbazolium] p-tosylate (DAST) was used as photosensitizer and effectively reduced the laser power to 0.66 mW. The increase of the irradiation time and repeated scanning induced more reduction in the multiphoton photoreduction microfabrication process, resulting in the optimization of the linewidth. The fusion of silver nanoparticles was confirmed, which led to the morphology change of silver microstructures for achieving the compact metallic microstructures. The result would provide an important protocol to fabricate the metallic microstructures for the electronic and photonic applications.
