Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Sonication-assisted casting was developed to prepare highly ordered three dimensional (3D) latex films of centimeter sizes from aqueous polystyrene microspheres of different diameters. The thickness of the 3D-ordered latex film was adjustable from several layers to several tens of layers by changing the concentration of the latex solution. The films showed photonic stop bands according to the sphere size in the as-prepared 3D-ordered latex film. These 30-ordered latex films displayed photonic stop bands that are consistent with theoretical estimates based on the latex size.
