Biomolecular nanopatterns can be quickly fabricated over a large area with a resolution down to 10 nm by magnetic electric lithography, as reported by Z. Gu, S. Huang, and Y. Chen in their Communication on page 952 ff. Magnetic nanoparticles coated with multiple distinct biomolecules are deposited by a magnetic field and immobilized onto nanoelectrodes by an electric field to generate arbitrary heterogeneous biomolecular nanopatterns, which can then be printed onto polymer films for diverse biomedical applications.
