Self-assembled diphenylalanine peptide nanotubes provide a means of achieving nanostructured materials in a very simple and fast way. Recent
discoveries have shown that this unique material, in addition to remaining stable under dry conditions, rapidly dissolves in water making it a
promising candidate for controlled nanofabrication without organic solvents. The present work demonstrates how this unique structure can be
aligned, manipulated and used as both an etching mask in a dry etching procedure and as a lift-off material. As a further demonstration of the
potential of this technique, the peptide nanotubes were utilized to fabricate silicon nanowire devices and gold nanoslits in a rapid manner.
