Electron-beam scanning is used to realize spatially-controlled in situ synthesis of nanocrystals, as reported by Luana Persano and co-workers on page 5320. A smart combination of complementary nanofabrication approaches including nanoimprinting, electrospinning, and electron-beam decomposition of nanocrystal precursors, and subsequent nucleation of nanoparticles in a polymer matrix, allows the exploitation the most favorable flow conditions of organics to produce various nanocomposite nanostructures.
