Controlled hierarchical self-assembly and deposition of nanoscale photonic materials Academic Article uri icon


  • Piles of molecules: Self-assembled nonamer arrays self-organize into 3D aggregates (see scheme: L="L-shaped" porphyrin (corner piece), T="T-shaped" porphyrin (side piece), +="cross-shaped" porphyrin (center)). The size of the nanoscaled material on surfaces can be controlled from 1 nonamer to 50-nm-tall aggregates by chemistry, kinetics, and choice of surface.
