Laser ablation and ionization is investigated as a technique suitable to the fabrication of nanowire interconnects and of biological and organic molecule monolayer immbilization. The technique can be exploited both as an unconventional source of material in conventional top-down lithographic approaches and in bottom up approaches based on the use of scanning probe instruments. Recent results demonstrating maintenance of integrity of thin layers of immobilized aromatic molecules and functionality of nanopatterned biomolecular monolayers are shown. Also, ultrathin and uniform metallic layers suitable for the fabrication of nanowire interconnects are obtained. Finally, first results on the bottom up fabrication of nanoscopic metallic features are shown.
