Abstract

Recently developed star-shaped nanosized oligofluorene truxenes are dispersed in a novel vinyl-ether-based photoresist to produce microstructures via direct laser writing. The technique offers rapid and facile production of nanostructures whithin a microstructure, and ensures environmental protection from photo-oxidation of the fluorescent molecules.
