Evaporative self-assembly of dilute solutions containing single-chain polymeric nanoparticles results in characteristic morphologies imaged using atomic force microscopy. Quantitative comparison of experimental data to morphologies obtained by lattice-gas simulations shows that the nonequilibrium patterns emerge from a complex interplay between dewetting, solvent evaporation and nanoparticle diffusion.
