An overview is given of a rapid route by which the morphology of block copolymers can be oriented normal to the surface of a film where the total film thickness is many times the period of the copolymer. This structure in the film is far removed from the equilibrium structure which can be achieved by thermally annealing the film. A simple explanation is proposed to describe this observation.
