Various large-area 2D gold nanorod arrays are achieved on plasma-etched block copolymer templates. With the help of capillary forces, aqueous gold nanorods assembled on the templates show good position selectivity and high coverage of the grooves. Furthermore, these nanorod arrays can transform into gold nanowires by a post-etching process.
