Under similar electrodeposition conditions the unique surface properties of pyrolyzed photoresist films result in smaller gold nanoparticles with a higher density when compared to other common electrode materials. Reactive ion etching of such surfaces results in the formation of unique AuNP-capped pyramidal carbon structures (see image).
