Paper Abstract

We investigate the optical properties of thin films of two photonic systems: synthetic opal and crystalline liquid BPII. Diffraction related with three-dimensional periodic structure and interference related with light reflection from film surfaces were measured. We found a substantial change of refractive indices at the edges of the photonic bands in both materials. The relation between the frequency and the wave vector of light shows a nonlinear behavior near zone boundary.
