I'm trying to create a ~2-3 nm thick film with glycerol and gold nanoparticles(30 nm in dia.). The gold particles are in suspension in DI water. I've tried a 5% solution (diluted glycerol) and the DI and gold using a dip coating process with withdraw speed (0.75 mm/min). The film thickness...Read More...POSTED BY dave11420 ON November 22nd, 2011
