Summary We have developed a novel method to grow ordered layers of monodisperse colloids on a flat substrate. The evaporation of the colloidal suspension in the presence of the inclined substrate is strengthened by an external gas flux directed on the meniscus. The meniscus oscillations caused by the gas flux have an evident effect on the ordering of the spheres on the substrate. Thick films (more than 150 layers in a single-step deposition) of large area single crystals (1 cm2) can be obtained in a very short time (~1 cm/h maximum growth rate) and from very diluted suspensions (up to 0.022% volume fraction).
