Preparation of a photonic single crystal

The first part of the work is the preparation of a photonic single crystal by 3D printing technique. 3-dimensional stacking of piles will provide a periodic lattice with periodicity in the range of 1 m, a characteristic length comparable with the wavelength of visible light. In a subsequent step en experimental set-up have to be built to perform diffraction experiments using visible light. Geometries of classical X-ray diffraction techniques will be used using white light (Laue diffraction) or monochromatic light (single crystal diffraction by using a four circle goniometer).
