By the combination of surface sol-gel process of metal alkoxides (TiO2) and the mass-controlled layer-by-layer sequential adsorption process of polyelectrolytes, highly ordered organic / inorganic interface was successfully fabricated. The one dimensional photonic crystal such as photorefractive device can be produced by using this method owing to the large differences of the refractive index between the layers.
