We have reported that honeycomb-like porous polymer films, which were spontaneously formed in the casting of polymer solutions under humid conditions, were converted into honeycomb-like metal meshes by electroless plating. In this report, the unique optical properties of these meshes will be discussed. Silver-coated honeycomb mesh films were prepared by selforganization and electroless plating methods. The incident angle dependence of their transparency, and their electrical conductivity were measured. The metallized film had limited viewing angle.
