AbstractAccurate and reproducible patterning of proteins and functional nanoparticles is essential to exploit their properties in nano and microscale devices [1]. Electrostatic interactions, capillary forces, surface functionalization and nanolithography can be used in combination or independently to achieve the desired protein organization [2]. Here, we report a simple yet efficient method to deposit ferritin proteins with nanoscale accuracy over large areas. The selective deposition is driven by the electrostatic interactions existing between the proteins and nanoscale features. The efficiency of the deposition process can be controlled by changing the pH of the solution. By combining a top-down tip-based nanolithography [3] and bottom-up electrostatic interactions we have formed regular arrays of ferritin molecules with an accuracy that matches the protein size (~10 nm). Magnetic force measurements confirm the magnetic activity of the deposited nanoparticles.
