A novel hybrid organic/inorganic photonic crystal slab showing a resonance action at the band edge.

Here we propose and experimentally demonstrate a hybrid photonic crystal (PC) slab consisting of air rods in a nanocomposite prepared by incorporating CdSe/CdS core/shell NRs (NR) in a polymer. Since the styrene methyl acrylate based polymer (ZEP) is transparent in the visible spectral range and is an electron-sensitive material, it was chosen as the… CONTINUE READING
