A very short processing time for making well-organized multilayer films can be achieved employing the novel spin self-assembly method described in this paper. The authors elaborate on the advantages of this method versus conventional self-assembly methods for the fabrication of multilayer polyelectrolyte films. The Figure illustrates that the spinning process (bottom) yields far better organized layers than for instance the direct dipping method (top).
