Abstract

The higher frequency photonic band structure in opal photonic crystals in the region of the eighth and ninth band was measured. These planar opals consisted of 10 layers of silica spheres close-packed on a face-centered cubic (FCC) lattice. The templates were filled with high refractive materials and the structure was inverted by etching away the spheres. The sub-domain spectroscopy (SDS) technique was used to minimize the influence of defects on the optical response of the crystal.
