    Abstract Image

    We present a specially designed materials chemistry that provides ultrathin adhesive layers with persistent tacky surfaces in solid, nonflowable forms for use in transfer printing and related approaches to materials and micro/nanostructure assembly. The material can be photocured after assembly, to yield a robust and highly transparent coating that is also thermally and electrically stable, for applications in electronics, optoelectronics, and other areas of interest.
