Title: Photonic properties of an inverted face centered cubic opal under stretch and shear
Abstract: We present the results of numerical calculations of the dispersion for an inverted fcc opal structure subjected to a stretch and We find that shearing of the crystal only lowers the gap width slightly changes the midgap frequency. Interestingly, that in a range of stretch amplitudes (up to 10\%) the gap width is and even slightly enhanced. The midgap frequency depends linearly on the stretch amplitude allowing for tuning an inverted opal structure to a desired operational frequency. This last may be important for the manufacturing process. (C) 2003 American Institute of Physics.
