Author Affiliations +
We consider the possibilities of developing smart nano-structured coverings that allow one dynamically change their color in the reflected light by modify spectral position of their reflection coefficient. The suggested technology is based on the recent progresses in the field of photonics and the fabrication of silicon-compatible photonic band gap (PBG) materials, photonic crystals. It is suggested to compose the PBG structures of porous silicon and infiltrate them with active nano-compounds whose optical features can be changed by the application of the electric field, current or illumination. As a result, the controlled change of color of the composed structure can be achieved.
