Patterns composed of solvent wetting and dewetting regions promote lateral confinement of solution-sheared and lattice-strained TIPS-pentacene crystals. This lateral confinement causes aligned crystal growth, and the smallest patterns of 0.5 μm wide solvent wetting regions promotes formation of highly strained, aligned, and single-crystalline TIPS-pentacene regions with mobility as high as 2.7 cm2 V−1 s−1.
