Epub 2016 Oct 24.This research reports the development of sensitive and reversible vapor detection by using three-dimensional macroporous photonic crystals. A scalable and roll-to-roll compatible doctor blade coating technology is utilized to fabricate flexible macroporous poly(ethoxylated trimethylolpropane triacrylate) (PETPTA) films with hexagonal close-packed pores which are interconnected. The pores are then coated with a layer of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) to create macroporous PHEMA/PETPTA films. Read More
