A dually tunable photonic crystal composed of thermosensitive gel particles confined in a pH-sensitive inverse-opal gel is reported. The position of the photonic band-gap can be thermally regulated, while its intensity is dramatically changed by pH. Reversible, independent, and extensive switching of the position and intensity of the photonic band-gap could be achieved using independent external stimuli.
