By confining a polymer film between two electrodes one of which is solid but thin enough to be flexible, a characteristic lateral morphology is produced when a strong electric field is applied across the film. A simple model to describe the observed behaviour is presented which accounts for the length scales of the observed morphology. This model demonstrates that feature sizes ranging from microns to nanometers can be obtained through selective choice of key parameters.
