20_08b/2008Inside Front Cover: Patterned Growth and Transfer of ZnO Micro and Nanocrystals with Size and Location Control (Adv. Mater. 8/2008)

Selective growth of ZnO at the interface between oxidized GaN and a photoresist using low-temperature hydrothermal growth is reported on p. 1474 by Heiko Jacobs and co-workers. Oxygen plasma treatment and a patterned photoresist are used to fabricate tailored ZnO micro and nanocrystals at precise substrate locations. The ability to tailor the microcrystal dimensions and attachment areas allows the ZnO to be detached and transferred to a flexible substrate (bottom left).
