Hydrogel Photonic Crystal Samples

June 22, 2010
Hydrogel Photonic Crystal Samples Hydrogel photonic crystal samples composed of various particle types and sizes are shown. The test tube contains crystals assembled from particles that are 220 nanometers in diameter. The thin film sample in the foreground contains 190 nanometer diameter particles, while the film in the background is composed of the same material contained in the test tube. This research was performed at the Georgia Institute of Technology. For more information, see the Sept. 10, 2003, Georgia Tech Research News, "Photonic Structures: New Technique Creates Patterns in Unique Crystals Formed from Hydrogel Nanoparticles."
