We report the use of thermochemical nanolithography to convert a precursor polymer film to poly(p -phenylene vinylene) with sub-100 nm spatial resolution, in ambient conditions. The local thermochemical conversion is verified by Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence imaging, and atomic force microscopy. This convenient direct writing of conjugated polymer nanostructures could be desirable for the design and fabrication of future nanoelectronic, nanophotonic, and biosensing devices.
