The ordered nanoparticle monolayers and multilayers over macroscopic areas were prepared by the modified Langmuir-Blodgett method. Using this approach, the nanoparticle monolayer is formed on the water surface by compression and subsequently it is transferred onto the substrate by a controlled removal of the water subphase. The ordering and homogeneity of the prepared mono- and multilayers was studied by scanning electron microscope (SEM), grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS) and X-ray reflectivity (XRR) techniques. From the results it follows that an ordered nanoparticle monolayer was formed over a large area. For the multilayer, the layering and lateral ordering of each layer was confirmed by XRR and SEM performed after the deposition of each nanoparticle layer.
