Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper demonstrates templated self-assembly - based on capillary forces - of millimeter-scale poly-(dimethylsiloxane) plates suspended at the water-perfluorodecalin interface. The system described abstracts the concept of `templating' from molecular templating and uses it to design millimeter-scale aggregates that self-assemble in ordered structures. This work points the way to new strategies for organizing complex, millimeter-scale structures.
