Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "The type of pattern, the size and number of features, and their dynamics depend on the grafting density of the polymer brush and amount of good solvent adsorbed. The final pattern morphology depends primarily on the total amount of material adsorbed to the surface, including both polymer and solvent."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This result suggests the possibility for the use of polymer brushes as surfaces with reversibly tunable nanopatterns."
