Two-dimensional nanoparticle organization using block copolymer thin films as templates

Abstract

The creation of ordered nanoparticle assemblies is one of the main prerequisites for the utilization of nanoparticles in advanced device applications. However, while considerable progress has been made in the precision synthesis of high quality, uniform nanoparticles of different compositions, sizes and shapes, our ability to organize them into ordered structures still faces major challenges. This Feature Article focuses on a facile approach developed in recent years for the fabrication of two-dimensionally organized nanoparticle assemblies, which is based on patterning as a simple and straightforward assembly mechanism and on block copolymer films as easily created templates.
