Polyfluorene nanowire Y-junctions synthesized by solution-assisted template wetting are shown to exhibit strongly polarized light emission from the branches and stems. It is demonstrated that the Y-junctions can be positioned, and branching angles may be adjusted, by micromanipulation. Nanowire junctions of this type could ultimately facilitate the incorporation of conjugated polymer materials into highly integrated electronic and photonic circuits and systems.
