Mesostructured thin films were fabricated using combined aerosol deposition techniques and evaporation-induced self assembly (EISA). The formation mechanism involved solvent EISA of aerosol droplets with subsequent mesostructure reassembly and particle coalescence on a substrate. A higher degree of silica condensation inhibited the reassembly and resulted in the formation of particles or mesostructured thin films with a less ordered mesostructure.
