|Abstract:||Binary colloidal films of polystyrene (PS) spheres and silica spheres were fabricated with a sequential growth method using differently sized colloidal particles. In particular, we demonstrate the structures formed by a silica monolayer growing on top of a PS monolayer and a silica multilayer growing on top of a PS monolayer. By removal of the bottom PS layers, non-close-packed hexagonal, pentagonal, and square silica arrays were obtained at the original silica/PS interface. The possible formation mechanism of the non-close-packed structure was discussed, which may be used to explain how 3D colloidal crystals grow on patterned substrates. © 2007 American Chemical Society.|
