Abstract

We fabricate and characterize polymeric three-dimensional layer-by-layer chiral photonic crystals. The obtained circular dichroism from polarization stop bands is comparable with that of recently demonstrated circular–spiral photonic crystals. Moreover, telecommunication wavelengths are easily accessible with the layer-by-layer approach; even visible wavelengths are in reach.
