Paper Abstract

We prepared thin film opal crystals and studied their angle-resolved transmission spectra in linear and circular polarized light as a function of the incidence angle and the azimuth rotation angle. We also explored the polarization conversion in linear and circular polarized light. Based on the spectra analysis we ascribed the polarization conversion in opal photonic crystal to properties of the Bloch modes of 3-dimensional photonic crystal.
