Paper Abstract

In this work we present optical and structural characterisation of high-quality opal based photonic crystals consisting of polystyrene spheres ordered into a FCC lattice. By means of optical diffraction we orient our samples so that the evolution of its spectral features in reflectivity experiments may be probed along desired directions in reciprocal space. Prior to a comparison with calculated bands, finite size effects in the optical properties of the samples are taken into account. Further, attention is paid to the appearance of spectral features for energies above those where the characteristic Bragg peak is found.
