"Using ultraviolet light, chemists have reversibly immobilized molecules on surfaces (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja302970x). The technique could be used to develop repairable microarrays or to study how biochemical events on surfaces progress with time. 

Light-mediated reactions are nothing new when it comes to decorating surfaces for bioanalytical chemistry. But most techniques are irreversible or make it difficult to reuse a surface.
