Abstract

Self-organized 3D photonic superstructures loaded with plasmonic hybrid nanorods were found to undergo structural transformation from body-centered cubic to simple cubic upon NIR-light irradiation resulting from the “photothermal effect” of gold nanorods. Furthermore, dynamic NIR light-directed red, green and blue reflections of the nanocomposites were demonstrated.
