Title

UV Lasing in High-Order Bands of ZnO Inverse Opal Photonic Crystals

Abstract

Directional ultraviolet lasing at room temperature in 3D ZnO photonic crystals is reported. Comparison of measured optical properties with the calculated band structures shows that lasing occurs due to slow-propagating modes in high-order photonic bands.
