Nanometer size particles of CdS were synthesized and incorporated in gem-quality opals by a solution technique. The topological image of sample surface and the site of CdS particles are examined by atomic force microscopy, and the quantum size effect is found in our optical measurements. The possibility of producing arrays of quantum dots and wires is suggested by these observations.
