Studying the photonics of foams, we showed how to construct a foam-based photonic crystal with a substantial band gap using the famous Weaire-Phelan foam.

We published all data generated or analyzed for our phoamtonics study, including configurations, parameter files, raw output, and postprocessed data, in a Zenodo
repository ( DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.3401635
