A polymer nanocomposite material for direct writing of silver metal was designed and fabricated. The synthesis was based on photoreductive growth of silver particles using photoreducing dyes. The nanoparticles prepared were responsive to photon and electron-beam stimuli and yielded continuous metallic structures. The approach has applications in the fabrication of optical and electronic interconnects, and electromechanical devices.
