A nanocomposite was prepared from fumed silica and PVA. Investigation of the morphology of the composite by TEM and electron energy-loss spectroscopy reveals that the nanocomposite consists of homogeneously dispersed SiO2 nanoparticles and PVA. Micropatterns on the nanocomposite were fabricated by room-temperature imprinting. Micropatterned silica glass was obtained by sintering the nanocomposite at 1100°C in air.
