Paper Abstract

Physically robust photonic bandgap (PBG) composites based on electrostatically stabilized polymeric colloidal particles are presented. The glass transition (Tg)of the composites can be varied over a large temperature range through the selection of the monomer(s) used to fabricate the composite. Composites with a subambient Tg exhibited a mechanochromic response and were integrated with a peizoelectric actuator to produce a prototype device which exhibited a fully reversible tunable rejection wavelength, capable of a ca. +/- 86 nm (172 nm full range)stop band shift.
