Abstract

Self-organized formation of parallel-banded structures was demonstrated through the twisted growth of K2Cr2O7 in a thin layer of a viscous solution containing poly(acrylic acid) on a glass substrate. Dense branching of the twisted crystals was induced by increasing their growth rate under a controlled flow of nitrogen gas. Periodically banded structures were then obtained by the synchronization of the twist in the parallel branches. Specific structural colors originating from the parallel-banded structures as a diffraction grating were observed on the self-organized patterns of the twisted crystals.
