  • Patent number: 9153437
    Abstract: Methods for forming inorganic nanostructures are provided. The methods create the inorganic nanostructures by positioning a writing electrode (e.g., a conductive “stamp”) spaced nanometers above a substrate such that a precursor is intermediate the two. Applying an electric field, a voltage bias, an ionic current, or an electronic current between the writing electrode and the substrate converts the precursor into an inorganic solid material (e.g., a semiconductor such as silicon or germanium) in the area of the writing electrode.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 30, 2012
    Date of Patent: October 6, 2015
    Assignee: University of Washington through its Center for Commercialization
    Inventors: Marco Rolandi, Hideki Sato, Stephanie Vasko, Michael Brasino, Adnan Kapetanovic, Vamsi Talla
