Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor patterned surfaces are used for site- specific attachment of biomolecules and semiconductor quantum dots (QDs; see figure). The fabrication of surfaces with multiple functional building blocks can be used in a single step to create complex multifunctional patterned substrates incorporating self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) and thiol-functionalized quantum dots for a variety of applications.
