Bottom-up assembly of photonic crystals.
In: Chemical Society Reviews, Vol. 42, No. 7: pp. 2528-2554
In this tutorial review we highlight fundamental aspects of the physics underpinning the science of photonic crystals, provide insight into building-block assembly routes to the fabrication of different photonic crystal structures and compositions, discuss their properties and describe how these relate to function, and finally take a glimpse into future applications.
