Photonic crystals (PhC) are promising candidates for novel optical components. Passive devices realized with PhC, e.g. complex waveguides, are widely known. However, for many applications active devices are required. One possible way to realize such devices is the functionalization of 2D PhC. This can be done by combining 2D PhC with polymers, liquid crystals or dyes. Especially the functionalization of individual pores is of great interest. We present a method that allows the infiltration of individual pores of 2D silicon PhC with various materials in one sample. For the infiltration of individual pores we use 2D PhC templates made of macroporous silicon, electron beam physical vapor deposition, focused ion beam technique, electrochemical deposition and the wetting assisted templating (WASTE)-process.
