Abstract

Three-dimensional silicon photonic band gap crystals are obtained by combining planar self-assembly of colloidal spheres with standard silicon deposition. This simple and inexpensive approach yields high-refractive-index inverted opals of controllable thickness that are integrated directly onto a silicon wafer. These photonic bandgap structures, which operate at telecommunications wavelengths, are planar single-crystals over large areas with very low defect densities.
