1. Mechanical Characterization The mechanical properties of inverse opals have not yet been studied widely. Given the open nature of these structures, which are typically built from connected nanocrystals or from thin amorphous walls, many 3 DOM materials are relatively fragile and can be crushed under small loads. This is certainly true for oxides and some metallic 3DOM structures. However, monolithic 3DOM carbon and inverse opal silicon or polymer films are strong enough for handling. For example, when used as electrodes, 3DOM carbon monoliths withstand the pressure 30 Lytle and Stein exerted by binder clips [295].

2% of the maximum possible space [304]. Simulations have indicated that direct gap structures are much more dependent on the refractive index contrast than are indirect gap structures. The direct gap region is dominated by the change in the filling fraction and the refractive index. The indirect gap region is dominated by the change in the air network topology [304]. The photonic band structure depends critically on the morphology of the macropore walls. For example, based on calculations for silicon, inverse opals with an egg-shell like structure can possess a complete PBG between the 8th and 9th bands, whereas a skeletal structure with cylinders connected by tetrahedral and octahedral centers can have a second PBG between the 5th and 6th bands [87,305,306].

Tunable Photonic Crystals For many device applications, it is desirable to tune the band structure of photonic crystals in real time. Tuning is possible by dynamic variation of the refractive index, periodicity or space filling factor of a photonic crystal under the control of electric field, temperature, strain, or magnetic field effects. overall refractive index. Such RI changes can be effected readily with infiltrated liquid crystals, which exhibit large optical anisotropy. In normal opals with smaller void fractions, these 36 Lytle and Stein changes are less pronounced.
