    Flexible two-dimensional particle arrays, which are periodic structures in the optical region, were prepared utilized a thermosetting resin. This type of arrays can be bent easily and repeatedly. Beautiful light propagation patterns such as micro-circle or micro-star-like shapes were observed inside of flexible two-dimensional particle arrays from the emission of fluorescent particles in the arrays. This flexible two-dimensional particle array might be changed the general idea of self-assembled structures; which normally exist on solid substrates.
