Actual research project

My research is currently focused on 2 main areas:

1.Mass fabrication of high quality colloidal photonic crystals.

2.Inversion of colloidal photonic crystals with materials having useful optical properties, that can be used to produce all-optical and full-integratable photonic devices.
