This image shows Gello Folding into brain like patterns. We were trying to learn how the phase transition of hydrous to anhydrous can be effected by patterning hydrophobic groups. The image demonstrates the ability to pattern the effects of a phase transition for nano/micro fabrication and shows how very small differences in surfaces can have huge effects during phase transitions.
