3D printing and actively switchable redox-active oligo(aniline)-based materials are combined to create novel tuneable 3D photonic materials. By a direct laser writing process, switchable functional structures with sub-micrometer features are fabricated. Reversible changes in the refractive index of our written materials are generated with negligible size changes.
