A straightforward, electron-beam induced synthesis and patterning approach to the in situ generation of CdS nanocrystals in nanocomposite films and light-emitting electrospun nanofibers is used. Smartly combining room-temperature nanoimprinting, electrospinning, and electron-beam decomposition of nanocrystal precursors and subsequent nucleation of nanoparticles in a polymer matrix allows exploitation of the most favorable flow conditions of organics to produce various nanocomposite nanostructures.
