Fabrication of Micropatterns on Silica Glass by a Room‐Temperature Imprinting Method
A nanocomposite was prepared from fumed silica and PVA. Investigation of the morphology of the composite by TEM and electron energy‐loss spectroscopy reveals that the nanocomposite consists of homogeneously dispersed SiO2 nanoparticles and PVA. Micropatterns on the nanocomposite were fabricated by room‐temperature imprinting. Micropatterned silica glass was obtained by sintering the nanocomposite at 1100°C in air.
