Abstract

An improvement to the method of creating close-packed polystyrene nanosphere arrays on silicon via liquid surface self-assembly has been attained via modification of the deposition technique. This modification facilitates consistent and large area deposition of high quality close-packed polystyrene nanosphere monolayers on silicon substrates that was achieved in this work. This technique has the potential to be used for photonics applications such as creating low cost, large area antireflective surfaces in solar cells.
