Going with the flow: Patterning of various inorganic materials was achieved by phase separation between the nanomaterials and a polymer melt as well as concentrating the nanomaterials in defined areas by a polymer melt flow. This technique generated micro- and nanostructured patterns of metals and semiconductors (see picture).
