Abstract
We report on pattern formation which occurs spontaneously upon heating organic multilayer devices to theglass transition temperature of one component. The pattern formation is characterized as spinodal deformationprocess which is intrinsically possible in all devices with thin deformable layers in a thermodynamic nonequilibriumstate. Size, morphology and direction of the pattern can be controlled which allows applications fornanostructuring optoelectronic devices.
