The aim of this research is to investigate the spectra of porous photon crystals reflection, using various sources of radiation: halogenous lamp, white diode and ultraviolet diodes. We find a big intensity increase in a porous photon crystal for the stimulating radiation of566 nanometers and establish that when a halogenous source of radiation is used, we can observe one peak on the spectrum. In case of monochromatic radiation, there occur additional peaks related to the luminescence phenomenon. We conduct a research into a red opal by means of monochromatic sources of radiation and we find the intensity peaks on the wavelength corresponding to the red range of radiation. Consequently, we calculate the rotation angle of the photon crystal used as the selection mirror for lasers.
