Nonlocal investigations are presented for exciton-photon coupling in three-dimensional nano-spherical-particle photonic crystals in compound lattices for a tailored dielectric environment to optimize the optical properties of nano particles. The photonic band structure can be modified by tuning the nano particle size and the distance between two interlacing identical face-centered sub-lattices making up the photonic crystal lattice. A complete photonic band gap with a gap-midgap ratio as large as 40.82% has been found in the wurzite structure under the current investigation.
