Abstract:

Three-dimensional opal-Si composites with both direct a variable extent of filling of opal voids with Si and inverted structures have been synthesized. A structural analysis of these fabricated systems is performed. Reflectance spectra from the surface III of the composites are measured. Observed spectral features are interpreted as a manifestation of the direction III photonic band gap that is tunable in position and width in the visible and near-infrared spectral ranges.
