Summary

New method for direct characterization of arrays consisted of uv laser dye Bis-MSB doped polystyrene spheres have been experimentally developed. The planar arrays of polystyrene sphere in diameters of 2.6 µm and 5.2 µm were made by the self-developing method. Two dimensional single crystalline structure on monolayer have been investigated by visible laser (632.8 nm) scattering technique based on a simplified method of Z-scanning the distance between sample and the focusing point of Gaussian beam. Scattering patterns with 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, and 42 spots from visible light (λ = 632.8 nm) were absorbed. This technique can lead to a formation of photonic crystal, which will be effective in a visible light range.
