Nanoscale metal patterns were successfully reproduced on top of a functional organic layer by a direct metal-transfer technique (DMT). A gold film deposited on the protruding features of a stamp was transferred to the organic layer by controlling its stickiness through a two-step thermal treatment. The process was also suitable for the transfer of highly adhesive metal materials to the stamp surface by using an additional gold layer. Chromium nanowires at 70 nm half-pitch were faithfully produced without any damage to the organic active layer.
