Paper Abstract

Dispersion curve calculations for photonic opals and inverse opals have been performed with the aim of study the influence of the dielectric contrast and of the size of the spheres on the widths of the photonic band gaps. Disorder effects in this kind of system have been briefly discussed. Moreover, structural-defects and punctual-defects, which generate photonic states inside the photonic band gap have been studied by using Large Unit Cells approach.
