A novel method for preparing conformal silica-embedded crystalline nanoparticle sheets via DNA programmable assembly provides independent control over nanoparticle size, nanoparticle spacing, and film thickness. The conformal materials retain the nanoparticle crystallinity and spacing after being transferred to flat or highly curved substrates even after being subjected to various mechanical, physical, and chemical stimuli.
