Nonlinear laser processing of silane-based monolayers is used to fabricate nanostructured chemical templates for the selective growth of polymer brushes in confined domains via surface-initiated polymerization (SIP). Upon varying the laser parameters, reactive domains with lateral dimensions from several micrometers down to the sub-100-nm range are(More)
A new method for surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) on the technical polymer poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) has been developed which allows controlling and estimating the layer thickness of the grafted polymer in the isocylindrical pores of track-etched membranes. After PET surface treatment by oxidative hydrolysis, the(More)
