Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


X-ray computed tomography is used to reconstruct the 3D structure of a polymeric photonic crystal. The reconstructed structure is compared to the structure predicted by a model. This analysis provides means to better understand deformations that occur during holographic fabrication of photonic crystals.
