Dip-Pen Nanolithography (DPN) is a powerful and versatile technique for nano- to micro-scale patterning. DPN entails loading the probe of an atomic force microscope (AFM) with a desired molecule which is then deposited in a specific pattern onto the substrate of interest. Since the introduction of DPN in 1999 a variety of molecules have been deposited, including proteins, alkylthiols (self-assembled monolayers) and metal salts. Deposition may be driven by covalent, electrostatic, or electrochemical forces. Here we describe the use of DPN for nano-scale patterning of biotemplates which can subsequently be used as biomineralization precursors or molecular building blocks for nanoscale structures.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
