We highlight some stability issues in high-surface-area and high-aspect ratio gold nanostructures fabricated using inorganic adhesion layers on silica substrates. We ascribe these problems to capillary and surface effects and show the use of organic silane self-assembled monolayers to improve the long-term stability of such structures.
A few important points in data conversion and mask processing of multilayered Ebeam lithography is discussed. The conversion is done using Layout Beamer software at EPFL CMi cleanroom.
