The optical characteristics of polymer/metal composite films having metal nanoparticles periodically aligned in rows were explored. They were prepared by irradiating ultraviolet light on the polymer films containing metal complex spin-coated on a reflective surface. The films were found to exhibit bandselective mirror characteristics. The wavelength of maximum reflection can be controlled by changing the incident angle of the irradiating light.
