Molding crystalline metals like silver into nanopillar structures is both possible and easier to achieve for narrower pillars, in contrast with other materials.

Ze Liu from Wuhan University in China and colleagues show that nanomolding of high-aspect-ratio features in silver is possible. They also show that molding becomes easier as the width of the feature decreases—not harder, as with other material types.
