Template synthesis and optical properties of chameleonic poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) gels using closest-packed self- assembled colloidal silica crystals.
Publication date: 2003
Journal: Advanced Materials
Abstract: Smart macroporous hydrogels with a range of optical behavior have been prepared using colloidal crystals as templates. The structural color imprinted in the gel (see Figure and cover) varies with a change in the volume of the gel. It is now possible to build a soft material that displays the various structural colors available to living things
