Abstract

We develop a simple and generally applicable method to fabricate hierarchical interfacial patterns in elastomer and thermoplastic polymer films through a combination of nanoimprinting and UVO microlithography. Using this method, tunable and hierarchically patterned glassy polymers are readily generated with different PDMS molding nanopattern masters, UVO irradiation, and micropatterned photomasks.
