Surfaces made from composite nanostructured materials are potential multifunctional platforms for detection, sensing, and energy harvesting in biological and inorganic systems. However, robust and cost-effective synthesis routes are required to create the required arrays of nanostructures with tailorable size, morphology, and composition. Here we show that self-organization via spontaneous pattern formation in nanometer thick bilayer liquid films could lead to such nanostructure arrays… CONTINUE READING
