Abstract

original image

Elaborate positioning of nanowire arrays can be generated upon highly adhesive superhydrophobic pillar-structured silicon substrates. The site of each nanowire can be precisely positioned by well designed tip-structured micropillars, yielding on-demand nanowire patterns. This approach might affect existing applications and enable new opportunities in organically functional devices and bio/chemical sensors.
