3DOM silicon films are first made by electrodeposition from an ionic liquid, which is a feasible and effective method. It could replicate the highly-ordered structure of a polystyrene colloidal crystal. Such 3DOM silicon films have a bandgap in the near infrared regime and have the potential for electrical and optical applications.
