Self-assembly is the process by which simple building blocks interact and organize themselves into ordered structures. Nature abounds with fascinating examples of self-assembled structures. Inspired by nature, researchers have long sought to exploit self-assembly as a “bottom-up” fabrication technique to engineer complex materials and devices. Currently, the self-assembly of ordered emulsions has elicited much interest for its potential application in multiple fields such as material synthesis and high throughput analysis.
