Inside Front Cover: Macroscopic Parallel Nanocylinder Array Fabrication Using a Simple Rubbing Technique (Adv. Mater. 17/2006)
A simple rubbing technique to macroscopically align nanocylinders in an amphiphilic diblock liquid-crystalline copolymer is reported by Ikeda and co-workers on p. 2213. The inside cover shows highly ordered arrays of nanocylinders parallel to the rubbing direction owing to supramolecular cooperative motions between mesogens and microphase-separated domains. This opens a novel, convenient pathway for controlling defect-free nanoscopic domains over large areas.
