  Forming closed packed particle monolayer have been investigate widely because of its usefulness in many fields. We use rubbing method, a forced assembly process for arraying particles, to form closed packed, single crystal particle monolayer. By this process we can obtain single crystal monolayers of spherical particles of various diameters. This can be done in very short time and cover large area, even curved surface. Painting is available by using particle monolayer to represent color-changeable images which depends on the viewing angle.


  Uniform patterns are produced in various methods. We produce partterns by capillary force lithography. nano-imprinting, photolithography, etc. Furthermore, we can use particle monolayer assembly for patterning by curing rubbers with light sources such as UV.
