Dip, stick, slip: Dip coating, a widely used industrial process for making thin films, is used to align and position nanowires by means of the stick-slip motion of the solvent meniscus. Nanowire arrays with predefined spacing can be readily "printed" on a large substrate with tunable wire density (see picture), thus providing a facile method for producing nanowire-based devices. (Figure Presented).
