Abstract
In this paper we introduce the electrospray technique as a suitable method to create SiO2 3D ordered nanostructures. We describe the experimental procedure and deposition parameters required. We have found that the use of a high electric field is mandatory to, first, induce the Taylor cone and then, to get 3D order while the nanospheres assemble in the substrate in the drying phase.
