Abstract

Free-standing, ultralong (up to several millimeters) nanobelts of gold, silver, and copper were fabricated by a template approach. Firstly, a metal nanofin array was prepared on a substrate via metal nanocoating of the template surface and selective removal of the metal top layer and template. Electroless plating and sputtering were employed for the metal nanocoating. In this approach, the minimum width and thickness of the Au nanobelt were 95 and 30 nm, respectively. Systematic control of the nanobelt width (from 95 to 350 nm) was successfully achieved by adjusting the template height. Free-standing nanobelts of several millimeters in length were fabricated and maintained their unique structure and alignment, even on a mesh grid.
