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 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
