Nanometer scale patterning on 2D self-assembled silver nanoparticle sheets using local oxidation nanolithography (LON) is successfully conducted. The patterns written by means of this method exhibit not only topological changes but also changes in the contact potential difference. The silver nanoparticle sheet as an adjusted work function film, which is patternable by LON, has great potential for nano-optoelectronic device applications.
