The asymmetry introduced by a complex or nonspherical basis promotes photonic band gap formation in three-dimensional photonic crystals. However, relatively few techniques have been demonstrated to produce uniform nonspherical colloids for use as photonic crystal bases. Here we expand the menu of basis types with high refractive index by preparing nonspherical zinc sulfide colloids of uniform size and shape. Dimers, trimers, and planar tetramers were precipitated from aqueous solution by the… CONTINUE READING
