Fully Tunable Silicon Nanowire Arrays Fabricated by Soft Nanoparticle Templating

The fabrication of tunable silicon nanowire arrays over large areas has so far remained so far an elusive task. A team lead by Prof. Lucio Isa from the Laboratory of Interfaces, Soft Matter and Assembly has demonstrated that current limitations can be overcome by a novel fabrication approach exploiting the self-assembly of soft hydrogel nanoparticles at fluid interfaces.
