Two methods are presented which have been successfully used to fabricate highly ordered 2D and 3D arrays of nano-scale particles. The first method uses a combination of microcontact printing (μCP) and surface-templated reactions to form 2D patterned arrays of nanoparticles on silicon substrates. The second method uses confined self-assembly to crystallize colloidal particles into 3D cubic-close-packed (ccp) arrays (or opaline structures).
