Diffusional self-organization in exponential layer-by-layer films with micro- and nanoscale periodicity.

The layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly technique is currently one of the most widely utilized methods for the preparation of nanostructured, multilayered thin films. The structure of LBL films is typically controlled by varying the deposition sequence of adsorbed layers, leading to stratified assemblies. 3] For specific, non-spherical inorganic LBL components… CONTINUE READING
