21_37b/2009Photonic Crystals: Patterned Polymeric Domes with 3D and 2D Embedded Colloidal Crystals using Photocurable Emulsion Droplets (Adv. Mater. 37/2009)

The inside cover shows a scheme for the preparation of photonic dome patterns, SEM images of a dome pattern, and a single dome decorated with 2D colloid array, as fabricated in work reported on p 3771 by Seung-Man Yang and co-workers. The background is an optical microscopy image of patterned photonic domes, which can be used as a near-field microlens array. The greenish color of the domes corresponds to the photonic bandgap.
