Metal-dielectric nanocomposite materials based on colloidal crystals have been prepared by electro-thermo-diffusion or magnetron sputtering of silver. Optical properties of these photonic crystals have been studied by angle-resolved reflectance and transmission spectroscopy. Interpretation of the observed optical spectra has been made taking into account the Bragg diffraction, Fano resonance, Fabry-Perot resonance and surface plasmon-polaritons, all participating in the formation of optical properties of metal-dielectric photonic crystals.
