Outline

Photonic crystals are ordered nanostructures with a periodicity of visible-light wavelength, which can control the properties of lights. Conventional photonic crystals are made from solid materials, while recently, we serendipitously found that water (99%) containing an inorganic component (1%) afford a high-performance photonic crystal. Based on this finding, we aim at developing unprecedented innovative photonic crystals that are orientable, deformable, and biocompatible. We also try to apply them to high-quality imaging and sensing.
