Abstract

We determine the linear birefringence magnitude, i.e. the difference between refractive indexes along the extraordinary and ordinary axes, of artificial uniaxial DNA crystals assembled with the so-called DNA tile approach. Based on the ellipsometric measurements, the birefringence magnitude is between 0.001 and 0.0018 in the visible and near infrared range. Besides being of fundamental interest, the optical properties of DNA crystals are crucial in the design of novel photonic nanostuctures.
