Direct liquid crystal templating from non-ionic polyoxyethylene surfactants has been
utilised to produce well-defined birefringent films of nanostructured cadmium telluride with
mesoporous architectures of extended spatial periodicities. The template mixtures and films were
characterised by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and polarising optical
microscopy to ascertain the presence of a regular nanostructure. UV-VIS reflectance
spectroscopy was employed to investigate the films’ optical properties.
