(Color) structure of a typical self-assembled film: (a) pseudocolor intensity image of a film portion exhibiting a nearly periodic grating at micron scale; (b) image of the film microstructure. An estimate of the number of nanospheres spanning one period is shown; (c) detailed photograph of a single period/crack.
