We show the preparation of honeycomb-nanoparticles hybrid structures by simple casting of nanoparticle dispersion onto the self-organized honeycomb-patterned films. The polystyrene honeycomb-patterned films were prepared by the "Breath Figure" method. The hydrophobic polystyrene honeycomb-patterned films were treated by UV-O3 to improve the wettablity. A newly developed sliding apparatus were used for embedding the submicron polystyrene particles. Finally, we obtained the multiple-periodic structure of the honeycomb-patterned film and nanoparticles.
