Using an optimized lift-off process we develop a technique for both nanoscale and single-dot
patterning of colloidal quantum dot films, demonstrating feature sizes down to ~30 nm for
uniform films and a yield of 40% for single-dot positioning, in good agreement with a newly
developed theoretical model. While first of all presenting a unique tool for studying physics of
single quantum dots, the process also provides a pathway towards practical quantum dot based
optoelectronic devices.
