Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) surface was patterned by laser scanning and Ga and Au layers of different thicknesses were sputtered onto modified polymer surface. The metal/PMMA structures were annealed at 160 C for 1 h and the changes in the surface morphology were examined by AFM and STM techniques. It was found that sufficiently thick and continuous metal coverage protect the underlying pattern structure.
