The realization of hybrid arrays based on polymeric photonic crystals (PCs) and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) remains a challenge since it requires a high level of control for simultaneously positioning both AuNPs and dielectric nanoparticles. Enhanced performance has been achieved by exploiting the synergy between PCs and plasmonic mechanisms of light diversion. This work focused on the recent studies of functionalized AuNPs embedded in composite PCs, considered as extraordinary systems for their photonic-plasmonic properties useful in many relevant application fields.
