Polymer Brushes with Nanometer-Scale Gradients



Surfaces with steep height or composition gradients at the nanometer scale are synthesized from self-asssembled photoinitiator monolayers. The monolayers are prestructured by interference lithography followed by brush growth. Through step-and-repeat processes, surfaces with nano meter-scale composition gradients are obtained.
