Mesoscopic two-dimensional patterns, regular dots, stripes, and honeycomb networks are formed when dilute organic solutions of polymers are cast on solid surfaces. Dynamic patterns, so-called "dissipative structures", formed in the non-equilibrium thermodynamic process of solvent evaporation, are fixed as the two-dimensional polymer patterns on substrates. Some photonic and electronic applications of the mesoscopic polymer patterns are described in this article.
