Because of its high directionality and tuneable interaction strength, halogen bonding is a viable tool for designing high-performance supramolecular polymers for holographic inscription of surface relief gratings (SRG). Light-induced surface patterning, a unique phenomenon that occurs in azobenzene-containing polymers, can be more efficient in halogen-bonded polymer–azobenzene complexes than in the analogous hydrogen-bonded complexes.
