Cover Picture: Lithography-Free, Self-Aligned Inkjet Printing with Sub-Hundred-Nanometer Resolution (Adv. Mater. 8/2005)
The inherently low resolution of inkjet printing on unpatterned surfaces can be overcome by selective surface modification of a first printed pattern, resulting in hydrophobic repulsion of subsequently deposited aqueous polymer dispersions. This technique, reported by Sirringhaus and co-workers on p. 997, is capable of achieving sub-100 nm resolution without any lithographic step. The cover shows an array of polymer transistors patterned with this method on three different length scales, as well as a schematic of the process.
