Laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS) are a phenomenon caused by interaction of light with solid surfaces. We present a photochemical concept which uses LIPSS-related light intensity patterns for the generation of heterogeneous nanostructures. The process facilitates arbitrary combinations of substrate and LIPSS-pattern materials. An efficient method for the generation of organometallic hybrid-nanowire arrays on porous anodic aluminum oxide is demonstrated.
