The multilayer colloid crystal growth on mesoscopically patterned surfaces was studied. The speed of crystal growth was controlled by varying electrodeposition parameters, and electrophoretic mobility of the particles. The method shows a new way to study 2D and 3D confinement-induced order-disorder transitions in complex fluids. The precise control of the degree of confinement is achievable by holographic patterning.
