Summary

This paper describes the fabrication of a silicon 3D photonic crystal with sufficiently low defect densities to maintain the complete bandgap over a large volume. The structure is fabricated by infiltrating a thin-layer colloidal crystal with Si by low pressure chemical vapor deposition, and then removing the template of the colloidal crystal.
