Polymeric films with highly ordered pores of narrow size distribution
are of great interest to industry for a variety of applications. Methods
for the formation of ordered porous polymeric films are currently dominated
by top down lithographic techniques that use electrons or
high-energy molecules to pattern surfaces. These techniques are complicated
and expensive, especially when applied to nanoscaled structures. ....[full
