Paper Abstract

Thin nanocrystalline arrays constructed using shear-flow crystallization of polystyrene colloidal nanoparticles consist of two types of domains D1 and D2 which are clearly visible on scanning electron microscopy patterns. Both kinds of domains have cubic close packing (ccp) and are distinguished by their orientation with regards to substrate surface. Positions of main minima in the visible-near-IR transmittance spectrum and their angular dependence on the angle between light direction and normal to the film are interpreted in terms of coexistence of different domain types and band gap structure.
