We met both requirements by separating the processes into two steps by first forming a monolayer of gold nanoparticles on a suitable liquid subphase of anisole and then transferring it edgewise onto a silicon substrate with a prepatterned template comprising nanoposts and nanogratings. Doing so resulted in nanoparticles that assembled in commensuration with the template design while exhibiting appreciable template-induced strain. These dense arrays of nanostructures could either be directly applied or used as lithographic masks in applications for light collection, chemical sensing, and data storage. © 2012 American Chemical Society.||Source Title:||Langmuir||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/55658||ISSN:||07437463||DOI:||10.1021/la303287z|
