Summary

For the preparation of photonic crystals, colloid particles with high refractive indices are formed with diameters from a few nanometers up to several hundred nanometers. Whereas the optical density of TiO2 is already given by the titanium atom itself, the incorporation of dyes in these SiO2 systems increases the refractive indices (near the absorption wavelength). The colloid particles are characterized by dynamic and static light scattering, SEM, MAS-NMR, UWVis, and optical transmission/reflection spectroscopy.
