A nanopatternable oligomeric PDMS layer has been first verified as a nano-adhesive for its intrinsic transferability and universal adhesiveness. Utilizing the well-established PDMS surface modification and bonding techniques, we have been able to form irreversible bonding between a wide range of substrate pairs, representing ones within and across different material categories, including metals, ceramics, thermoset, and thermoplastic polymers. The anisotropic conductivity of the PDMS oligomer nano-adhesive has been investigated, which allows specific and excellent directional conductivity between bonded electrodes without risk of electrical shorts across different contacts.
