Gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) doped carbon film was prepared by pyrolysis of the mixture of photoresist and Au NPs on silicon wafers. Film loss assessment, cyclic voltammetry, atomic force microscopy and gionometer were used to evaluate the characters of the prepared film. The cyclic voltammetry results proved the pyrolyzed carbon film to have very similar electrochemical properties to the standard glassy carbon, which will provide a potential application for electrochemistry and controlled nerve cell culture. Cell adhesion and morphology assays demonstrated that the attachment and differentiation on Au NPS doped carbon film is better than that on carbon, silicon and Poly-Lysine coated glass substrate due to its higher surface energy.
