A novel UV-induced fabrication of nano/macro hierarchical structures of triblock copolymer lamellar films is developed. The method is based on a change in the water affinity of the films activated by UV light. Osmotic pressure at the interface between illuminated and unilluminated parts drives the molecular migration for surface pattern formation. This remarkable advantage makes this method exceptionally versatile.
