Abstract

Nanometer-size threads of amphiphilic polythiophene are demonstrated to form upon collapsing a monolayer of polythiophene on a Langmuir-Blodgett trough (see also the cover). Bundles of these nanowires can be manipulated to fill the gap between gold electrodes, as shown in the Figure, where the wires are depicted in dark gray and the gold electrodes in light gray.
