  Functionalized photonic crystal films were prepared for sensing small chemical molecules. First, silica nanospheres were self-assembled to form a colloidal crystal template within a mold. The interstitial space of this template was infiltrated by the hydrogel precursors, which were then allowed to polymerize. ...  Read More
