We describe a simple method for the fabrication of highly ordered porous structures. That is, utilizing capillary forces, ultrafine particles are directly used to assemble themselves in the voids of template while the template is being assembled. The highly ordered porous structures with larger area and uniform orientation can be produced after removing the template. The majority of the single domains with uniform orientation prepared can reach 0.1 mm2 in area. Scanning electron microscope images and transmission spectrum of these samples have confirmed the success of this simple method. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
