An optical micrograph of self-assembled pattern in polymer thin film. When a polymer film is heated above its glass transition temperature and a mask is placed at a small distance above the film, the interplay between electrostatic force and surface tension can create interesting patterns. Actual dimensions: 108 µm x 138 µm.
