Patterning of polyelectrolyte multilayers by direct transfer of thin films to substrates using positively charged poly(dimethylsiloxane) stamps is demonstrated. Sequentially printed multilayer composites and strong electrostatic interactions between patterns and substrate allow multilevel and multicomponent pattern structures to be achieved (see Figure).
