Ferroelectric nanolithography provides a pathway for the direct assembly of patterned metal nano-particle arrays. On page 4712, David Conklin, Dawn A. Bonnell, and co-workers show that the density of the arrays is controlled by the photon flux and the size of the nanoparticles is controlled by the interface. Nanoparticle arrays can be functionalized by a range of active molecules, in this case opti-cally active porphyrin complexes, to produce hybrid optoelectronic devices.
