We investigate the possibilities to achieve 2D and 3D nanostructures by self-assembly of single component nanocomposites (SCN). The possibility to control the exact position of nanoparticles in a nanocomposite would be beneficial for a lot of applications, for example in data storage. For the formation of the SCN we graft the particles with block copolymers, block copolymers are known to self-assemble into diverse structures. We investigate the structures obtained by self-assembly of the SCN.
