Self assembly of functionalized rectangular nanostructures

Advanced Materials – Rectangular Symmetry Morphologies in a Topographically Templated Block Copolymer

Using an array of majority-block-functionalized posts makes it possible to locally control the self-assembly of a block copolymer and achieve several morphologies on a single substrate. A template consisting of a square symmetry array of posts produces a square-symmetry lattice of microdomains, which doubles the areal density of features.

This follows up work on self assembling nanowires and junctions.
