Nanoporous anodic alumina (NAA) membranes feature self-organized, highly ordered pores with distinct geometrical characteristics. Modifying the electrochemical anodization parameters and applying pulse-like anodization profiles tailors the pore morphology from straight to modulated structures such as distributed Bragg reflectors or gradient index filters. The photocatalytic performances of these photonic crystals (PCs) can be enhanced by functionalizing the surface with photocatalytically active materials (e.g. TiO2, ZnO, WO3) or tuning the photonic stopband of the NAA by adapting the pore morphology. Herein, thickness-controlled surface modifications of NAA-PCs by atomic layer deposition (ALD) are conducted and the photocatalytic properties of these structures are investigated by studying the photodegradation of methylene blue. Optimizing and combining these different preparation strategies to further improve the photocatalytic efficiency and to tune the wavelength selectivity of NAA-PCs could expand their utilization as tailor-made photocatalysts.
