Preparation of Line Patterned Mesoporous DAM-1 Thin Films via Pulsed Laser Deposition


Patterned mesoporous DAM-1 thin films were prepared on flexible transparent film utilizing the pulsed laser deposition and a line patterning technique. The patterned lines are transferred to the transparent film using a laser printer or copy machine. Laser ablation of DAM-1 onto the patterned substrate followed by a hydrothermal treatment resulted in a densely packed mesoporous film. Upon removal of the patterned lines (i.e. the underlying toner) by ultrasonic treatment in toluene, patterned DAM-1 films were produced.
