Abstract

The heavy-ion irradiation of a poly(vinylphenol) (PHS) thin film has been shown to cause cross-linking reactions along ion tracks, yielding a nanogel with reduced solubility in organic solvents. Wet-development affords isolated nanowires. In this paper, we report the direct formation of the hybrid nanowires based on PHS including Au nanoparticles (PHS/Au) by this single particle nano-fabrication technique: SPNT. The hybrids nanowires based on PHS/Au was successfully visualized by AFM on the substrate, and the included Au particles in the single PHS nanowire were also observed clearly using TEM.
