The periodic disturbance in transmittance of polystyrene photonic crystal is detected in our experiment. The peak-to-peak intervals of the periodic disturbance vary with the wavelength. It is attributed to the propagation of the whispering gallery mode in polystyrene spheres. The results show that the periodically arrayed particles may affect light transfer outside the gap band, which implies the possibility in applications of photonic crystal films.

    We propose a technique that permits one to increase by one order of magnitude the detection range of position sensing for the photonic force microscope with quadrant photodetectors (QPDs). This technique takes advantage of the unavoidable cross-talk between output signals of the QPD and does not...

    An ultrafast all-optical switching with the response time on the order of 10 fs is demonstrated in a three-dimensional opal polystyrene nonlinear photonic crystal by means of precise femtosecond pump-probe technique. The switching is realized by the shift in the photonic band gap under external...

    Chaos is a phenomenon that occurs in many aspects of contemporary science. In classical dynamics, chaos is defined as a hypersensitivity to initial conditions. The presence of chaos is often unwanted, as it introduces unpredictability, which makes it difficult to predict or explain experimental...
