Multicomponent and robust structures of quantum dots, in the form of stripes and grids, are produced by a simple flow coating method giving unprecedented control over macroscopic architectures from nanoscopic components. Crosslinking and lift-off of stripes lead to free-floating structures of nanoparticles that are flexible, robust, and fluorescent.
