Using X-ray diffraction it has been demonstrated that polycrystalline shattuckite can be synthesized by pulsed IR laser excitation of the thin layer of CuCl2 aqueous solution with an organosilicon compound placed upon a paper or polymeric film substrate. This process can be realized directly in standard atmospheric conditions at room temperature. Samples exhibit change of colour at different angles of illumination due to birefringence and interference. Any desired pattern can be obtained by scanning of a laser beam on the substrate surface.
