AFM Nanolithography for the Electrical Growth of Silver (Ag)

Human mind is always thinking forward and discovering new ideas, which keep developing during the course of their life. As a result, innovative technologies and intelligent inventions keep on emerging some of them are abased on new research while other are result of utilizing the old one. Nanotechnology is one such technology that is going to be a big step forward in transforming the world.

This thesis talks about the growth of silver nanoparticles through local chemical reduction method in AFM. Different parameters deeply studied and explained in theis thesis which cause problem for the creation of silver nanoparticles e.g. tip/sample contact time, tip/sample voltage difference, humidity factor and sample preparation. Matlab coding is also used to generate graphs for Absorption, Scattering and Extinction spectrum of silver nanoparticles for different diameters.
