Arrays of polymer nanowires can be fabricated on a large scale from various types of polymers by using a process that combines laser interference patterning and inductively coupled plasma etching, according to a U.S.-Chinese research team (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn103319p). Numerous methods are available for preparing arrays of semiconductor and other types of inorganic nanowires. But few techniques have been demonstrated for making organic or polymeric nanowires, and even fewer methods have been . . .
