Abstract:
A photonic crystal is any material which exhibits a photonic band gap (PBG) and is comprised of a periodic arrangement of alternating layers of different dielectric constant. It has been found recently that an interesting route to approach such materials is via the synthesis of block copolymers which are able to microphase separate. This thesis describes the synthetic methods, in particular anionic polymerization, used to prepare such copolymers which exhibit photonic properties in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
