19_24/2007Cover Picture: Photoinduced Formation of Wrinkled Microstructures with Long-Range Order in Thin Oxide Films (Adv. Mater. 24/2007)

Thin oxide films with long-range-ordered microstructures have been fabricated by a wrinkling process, initiated by photopolymerization from an oxide precursor–photomonomer system through sol-gel coating procedure followed by UV illumination. The cover image shows a TiO2 thin film with a long-range-ordered microstructure fabricated on a prepatterned substrate, as shown by Masahide Takahashi, Plinio Innocenzi, and co-workers on p. 4343.
