    Dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Acta Chimica Sinica.

Photonics crystals are structures composed of materials with different refractive indices arranged periodically. Due to their unique optical properties and excellent color saturation, they have become the most important type of structural color materials. In the past few decades, the fabrication of photonic crystals using self-assembly of nanoparticles has attracted widespread research attention due to its precision, low cost, and ease of large-scale production. The recent research progress on photonic crystal structural color materials, including their basic color production mechanisms, fabrication methods, and practical applications in displays, color sensing, and information anti-counterfeiting encryption is reviewed with focuses on the fabrication of photonic crystal structural colors using a “bottom-up” self-assembly approach. And the methods for producing photonic crystal patterns and large-area structural color films are emphasized. Finally, the challenges faced by current self-assembly fabrication of photonic crystal structural color materials and prospects for future development directions are discussed.

Key words: photonic crystal, structural color, self-assembly, patterning, colorimetric sensing, anti-counterfeiting
