Abstract: Patterning and fabrication of materials form one aspect of nanotechnology aimed at delivering complex material architectures for variety of applications that are otherwise not possible through thin film processes. The need to have regular structures on surfaces becomes imperative for a number of applications such as the making of CDs, sun glasses, miniaturized electronic circuit boards, memory devices and hologram designs when patterning enhances their performance. Although, the synthesis of different morphologies of metal oxide (ZnO) and metal (Au) nanostructures on flat surfaces is well established in literature, a number of inadequacies exist in fabricating geometrically defined nanostructures with tunable pattern-designs owing to little understanding in producing high throughput hierarchical patterns. In light of this, in this thesis, fabrication of ZnO and Au arrays in the sub-100 and sub-50 nm regime using a combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches for application in electronic devices is described.
