Abstract

Microporous polymer films with a hexagonal arrangement of pores were prepared by simple casting of various polymer solutions under humid conditions. Hexagonally packed micropores were prepared by using condensed water droplets as templates on the surface of polymer solutions. Spherical micro lens arrays (MLAs) were fabricated simply by molding from the resulting honeycomb structures. By peeling off the upper layer with adhesive tape, the pillars were severed, forming pins on each layer, and a hexagonal array of pincushion structures was generated by this procedure. Hemispherical MLAs were also fabricated by molding the pincushion structures. The hemispherical MLAs projected clearer miniaturized images than spherical MLAs.
