Ordered 2D arrays of polystyrene rings...

on gold surfaces have been fabricated by a combination of microcontact printing, surface-induced condensation of water, and a surface-directed and concentration-controlled dewetting process. The ordered array of rings could be further transferred into the underlying gold substrate by ion etching, using the polymer rings as resists. (B. Yang et al., August 5, Adv.
