The stability and association of polymer–fullerene films upon thermal annealing depends strongly on exposure to light, even at ambient conditions. As a result, dewetting of nanocomposite films can be prevented and the characteristic lengthscales of phase separated morphologies finely tuned. Coupling photopatterning with either self-organization process provides a powerful route for the directed assembly of fullerene-based nanocomposites into functional “circuits”.
