FIG. 1.

Schematic representation of gap narrowing by surface-catalyzed chemical deposition. (a) Integrated electrode pairs with large separation (about ) fabricated by conventional e-beam lithography. (b) Zoomed-in cross section of a single gap under gap-narrowing process. (c) Integrated nanogaps narrowed by the surface-catalyzed chemical deposition.

FIG. 2.

FESEM images of gap electrodes before and after surface-catalyzed chemical deposition. (a) Electrodes before chemical deposition. (b) An gap fabricated by the surface-catalyzed chemical deposition. The curve in part (c) shows the characteristics of a typical gap between gold electrodes in air and at room temperature. The solid line is the best fit to the experimental data with fitting parameters of , barrier , and the emission . FESEM images of (d) a three-fingered and (e) an interdigitated nanogap after the surface-catalyzed chemical deposition were also shown.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(a) Optical and (b) FESEM images of an array of the nanogaps with sub- separations after the surface-catalyzed chemical deposition. FESEM images of two-fingered nanogaps with magnifications of (c) and (d) .

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

(a) FESEM images of lead-connected nanogaps. (b) A histogram displaying the distribution of gap distance for 400 pairs of gold electrodes before and after the surface-catalyzed chemical deposition.
