Fast Fabrication of Large-Area, Nanostructured Arrays from Polymers or Carbon Nanotubes by Wet-Processing

A novel, fast, and low-cost method for fabricating large-area arrays of organic-material-based filamentary nanostructures is presented. The technique, auxiliary solvent-based sublimation-aided nanostructuring (ASB-SANS), only takes minutes and exploits a templating matrix easily removable by sublimation. Proof-of-concept patterns fabricated out of poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are demonstrated.
