FIG. 1.

[(a)–(d)] Schematic of the EAPL process. The technique employs a deformable mold made using PDMS replication molding. The mold protects selective areas of the substrate from plasma surface treatment, which spatially alter the surface hydrophobicity of the substrate. A drop of SELP solution is allowed to evaporate on the substrate and SELP self-assembles on the hydrophobic regions of the template. [(e) and (f)] Dark-field images of SELP arranged on a line and a grid pattern. Insets: schematics of the mold used in plasma treatment. Scale bars: .
