    • Creating Bio-Inspired Hierarchical 3D–2D Photonic Stacks via Planar Lithography on Self-Assembled Inverse Opals 

      Aizenberg, Joanna; Burgess, Ian; Loncar, Marko (IOP Publishing, 2013-11-21)
      Structural hierarchy and complex 3D architecture are characteristics of biological photonic designs that are challenging to reproduce in synthetic materials. Top-down lithography allows for designer patterning of arbitrary ...
    • Secrets revealed — Spatially selective wetting of plasma-patterned periodic mesoporous organosilica 

      Wang, Wendong; Burgess, Ian; Hatton, Benjamin D.; Alvarenga, Jack; Aizenberg, Joanna (Canadian Science Publishing, 2012)
      We report a simple method to pattern wetting properties on thin films of periodic mesoporous organosilica (PMO). A hydrophobic methane PMO thin film was covered by masks and exposed to oxygen plasma to make the unmasked ...
    • Ultra-high-Q TE/TM Dual-Polarized Photonic Crystal Nanocavities 

      Zhang, Yinan; McCutcheon, Murray; Burgess, Ian; Loncar, Marko (Optical Society of America, 2009)
      We demonstrate photonic crystal nanobeam cavities that support both TE- and TM-polarized modes, each with a Quality factor greater than one million and a mode volume on the order of the cubic wavelength. We show that these ...
    • Wetting in Color 

      Burgess, Ian Bruce (2012-11-06)
      Colorimetric litmus tests such as pH paper have enjoyed wide commercial success due to their inexpensive production and exceptional ease of use. However, expansion of colorimetry to new sensing paradigms is challenging ...
