Abstract

The spectral dependence of the optical transmission through hexagonal monolayers of silica (a-SiO2) microspheres covered with different amounts of amorphous silicon (a-Si) is studied. The strong changes in the spectral transmissivity can be semi-quantitatively understood by the coupling of the incident electromagnetic field to photonic modes of the combined structure consisting of the hexagonal lattice of a-SiO2 microspheres and a-Si.
