We have proposed and demonstrated an economical technique to fabricate a three-dimensional layer-by-layer photonic band gapstructure in the infrared wavelengths. An organic polymer template structure, an inverse layer-by-layer photonic crystalstructure, is assembled using the microtransfer molding technique. This template is infiltrated with sol-gel or nanoparticle titanium oxide slurry, then later removed by heat treatment at a temperature range of 550–800 °C. This method can be extended to fabricatephotonic crystals operating at optical and ultraviolet frequencies.
