|Issue Date:||14-Jun-2005||Citation:||Yan, Q., Zhou, Z., Zhao, X.S. (2005-06-14). Introduction of three-dimensional extrinsic defects into colloidal photonic crystals. Chemistry of Materials 17 (12) : 3069-3071. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1021/cm050381l||Abstract:||An effective and simple method for engineering micrometer-scale three-dimensional extrinsic defects within self-assembled colloidal photonic crystals (PC) was demonstrated. The method combines the techniques of self-assembly of colloidal spheres, photolithography on a preformed colloidal crystal, templated-directed colloidal crystal growth, and sequential growth of colloidal crystal. The vertical deposition or spin-coating was employed to grow polystyrene (PS) colloidal crystal within the channels. The PS spheres were synthesized using an emulsifier-free emulsion polymerization technique. Heterostructured colloidal crystals are expected to exhibit elaborate optical properties because of different PBG effects between the host and guest opal structures.||Source Title:||Chemistry of Materials||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/89276||ISSN:||08974756||DOI:||10.1021/cm050381l|
