Directed assembly of nanoparticles along predictable large-scale patterns using micromolded hydrogels.


We present a new technology to organize microparticles and nanoparticles along micropatterns of variable complexity over centimeter-squared surfaces. This technology relies on the fabrication of textured hydrogels, which serve as templates for directed assembly after the deposition of a droplet of colloids on their surfaces. We show that directed assembly… (More)
