Advanced plasmonics: Self-assembly brings order

How to make perfectly ordered membrane without ordering

Nanoporous self-organized membranes are complex, sophisticatedly fabricated, hierarchical nanostructures which combine several unique properties such as very developed surface area and long pores through the whole free-standing or surface-bond films of several micrometers to several hundred micrometres
