By varying the depth of the proton exchange (PE) from 0.59 to 3.10 µm in congruent lithium niobate crystals, the width of the lateral diffusion region formed by protons diffusing under the mask layer, can be controlled. The resulting deposition occurs in the PE region with the shallowest PE depth, and preferentially in the lateral diffusion region for greater PE depths. PE depth-control provides a route for the fabrication of complex metallic nanostructures with controlled dimensions on chemically patterned ferroelectric templates.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Institute of Physics||Journal:||Applied Physics Letters||Volume:||102||Issue:||4||Start page:||042908||Copyright (published version):||2013, American Institute of Physics||Keywords:||AFM; SPM; Atomic Force Microscopy; Diffusion; Ferroelectric materials; Ion exchange; Nanostructured materials; Shape control; Photoreduction; Lithium niobate||DOI:||10.1063/1.4789412||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
