Anisotropic nanoparticles, such as carbon nanotubes and noble metal nanorods, have excellent electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties. This work examined techniques for the nanopatterning of silicon substrates for the subsequent deposition of anisotropic nanoparticles in order to exploit their properties in macroscopic applications. Argon-ion-sputter induced rippling of Si (100) as well as a microparticle mask were examined as methods for templating a silicon substrate. For the ion-sputter
