A dipping method was developed to fabricate three-dimensional colloidal crystal films. The thickness of the films fabricated by this method can be precisely controlled from one layer to several tens of layers by controlling the particle concentration and the film formation speed. Experimental results showed that the spheres form a face-centered cubic structure and that single crystals in the film can extend to centimeter dimensions.
