Patterned, stimulus-responsive, “egg-cup”-shaped polymer brush microstructures can be used as motor arrays to manipulate the movement of gold nanoparticle (NP) aggregates in response to external stimuli that induce a conformational change in the brushes as the driving force. The motion of NP aggregates in the out-of-plane direction was achieved with displacements ranging from nanometers to sub-micrometers.
