Title: Using laser-induced thermal voxels to pattern diverse materials at the solid–liquid interface

Abstract

We describe a high-resolution patterning approach that combines the spatial control inherent to laser direct writing with the versatility of benchtop chemical synthesis. By taking advantage of the steep thermal gradient that occurs while laser heating a metal edge in contact with solution, diverse materials comprising transition metals are patterned with feature size resolution nearing 1 μm. We demonstrate fabrication of reduced metallic nickel in one step and examine electrical properties and air stability through direct-write integration onto a device platform. In conclusion, this strategy expands the chemistries and materials that can be used in combination with laser direct writing.
