Figure 23.4 — Optical force lithography. Manipulation and placement of nanostructures: (a) Assembly of a rhombus constructed from semiconductor CdS nanowires using HOTs. The assembly process entails nanowire translation, cutting and fusion with the substrate. (b) Placement of a In2O3 nanowire by a scanning optical tweezers to connect two branches of a circuit. (c) Deposition of gold nanoparticles on a glass substrate by HOTs: dark-field (top) and scanning electron microscope images (bottom) of a 5 × 5 pattern made of 80 nm particles.
