Abstract
We have recently developed a new type of silicon structure that we refer to as a silicon colloid. This new material consists of almost perfectly spherical silicon micro- and nanoparticles with a very smooth surface. They are able to trap light very efficiently in a large-span frequency range covering the visible to the far infrared regions. Silicon colloids can be thought of as a completely new material for scientific and technological purposes, with manifold applications covering electronics, p...
