We demonstrate the possibility of producing regular, long-range, spatially ordered polymer patterns without requiring the use of physical or chemical templating through the interfacial destabilization of a thin polymer film driven by surface acoustic waves (SAWs). The periodicity and spot size of the pattern are observed to be dependent on a single parameter, that is, the SAW frequency (or wavelength), therefore offering a rapid, simple, yet novel method for self-organized regular spatial… CONTINUE READING
