NANOHOLE MEMBRANES PATTERNED BY A TEMPLATE TRANSFER METHOD
Abstract - A novel fabrication scheme for freestanding metal nanomembranes is developed based on the template transfer technique. The created nanomembrane with the periodic nanohole array features high uniformity in large area. Some interesting behaviors during characterization imply this freestanding metal nanomembrane has special mechanical and electrical properties. In comparison to the same nanohole array on the substrate, the freestanding nanohole array show much higher transmission intensity, which would enhance the plasmonic sensing performance.
