In article number 1701043, Albertus P. H. J. Schenning and co-workers, explore how photo-responsive small molecules can be monolithically aligned when exposed to linearly polarized light in thin films with sub-5 nm cylindrical nanopatterns, while when exposed to unpolarized light the self-assembled nanocylinders are aligned out-of-plane. These results pave the way for generating defect-free functional organic thin films with three-dimensional orientational control by light.
