Abstract

The design and fabrication of photonic molecules that confine and manipulate electromagnetic fields on length scales comparable to optical wavelength is discussed. An interesting material property of a simple water-soluble polymer-blend that allowed to realize a new kind of polymer microsphere-based structure called photonic polymers is presented. The polymer particles tend to agglomerate under a wide range of collision conditions. Sharp resonance features are observed in fluorescence from dye doped into the particles. The photonic structures suggest the capability of the manipulation of optical waves in a wide variety of two- and three- dimensional photonic wire structure.
