The optical properties of metallodielectric inverse opals (see picture) prepared by co-crystallizing silica-coated gold nanoparticles (inset) and polymer spheres, followed by removal of the crystal template, can be engineered by varying the nanoparticle core size or shell thickness, and/or the nanoparticle volume-filling ratio of the composite. Such nanoparticles offer a route to photonic materials with unique bandgap properties.
