Construction of multifunctional photonic crystal microcapsules with tunable shell structures by combining microfluidic and controlled photopolymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Holey photonic crystal (PC) microcapsules are generated through a combined technique of microfluidic- and controlled-photopolymerization. This versatile route allows the fine tuning of shell structure (from well-ordered nanoporous to single-hole structures with tailored hole size) by etching or by varying UV light intensity, and endowing the PC microcapsules with multifunctional properties.
