Abstract: A hydrophobic substrate patterned with hydrophilic squares is used as a template for the selective deposition of two-dimensional micron and sub-micron polystyrene sphere arrays. In experiment, a monodisperse colloidal solution is applied to a patterned substrate. When the colloid is drawn off the substrate, two-dimensional arrays of colloidal spheres are selectively formed in the center of the hydrophilic squares. Optical microscopy coupled with high-speed photography allows the observation of this process for 1μm and 290nm polystyrene spheres. The observations reveal that as the body of colloid recedes off the substrate, the three-phase contact line becomes pinned at the pattern edges. This pinning causes the colloid to stretch across the hydrophilic areas, forming liquid films that neck and break off from the main body of colloid. The film is sufficiently thin to force the colloidal particles into a single layer. Capillary forces from the remaining liquid centers and packs the two-dimensional arrays in the hydrophilic patterns.
