Photonic crystal having complete band gap can be obtained from inverse opal material. We fabricated complete band gap of inverse opal from the high refractive index contrast between the infiltrated TiO2 and the porous. Inverse opal was fabricated by infiltration of the interstitial space of assemble polystyrene colloidal particles and then calcinations to remove the colloidal particles. The method of producing the inverse opal TiO2 and the possibility to use this material in waveguide application will be further investigated.
