Investigation of Methods for Patterned Fabrication of Silver Nanowires on a Ferroelectric Substrate

The aim of this project is to investigate the potential for patterned exposure of a ferroelectric substrate to an electron beam source to change the poling structure of the substrate. The specific substrate for this investigation is Periodically Poled Lithium Niobate. The electron beam source was a scanning electron microscope. This is a summary of the effect of spot size, magnification, and duration on the poling structure of the substrate. As of now, none of the experiments were successful in producing the poling changes which were the aim of this line of research. This investigation points towards future research which may be more fruitful than this inquiry. A section of suggested future research is included at the end of the paper.
