Abstract In this perspective, we explore hybrid
approaches to nanometer-scale patterning, where the
precision of molecular self-assembly is combined
with the sophistication and fidelity of lithography.
Two areas≠≠improving existing lithographic tech-
niques through self-assembly and fabricating
chemically patterned surfaces≠≠will be discussed in
terms of their advantages, limitations, applications,
and future outlook. The creation of such chemical
patterns enables new capabilities, including the
assembly of biospecific surfaces to be recognized
by, and to capture analytes from, complex mixtures.
