We present the results of numerical calculations of the dispersion relations for an inverted fcc opal structure subjected to a stretch and shear. We find that shearing of the crystal only lowers the gap width and slightly changes the midgap frequency. Interestingly, that in a large range of stretch amplitudes (up to 10%) the gap width is preserved and even slightly enhanced. The midgap frequency depends almost linearly on the stretch amplitude allowing for tuning an inverted fcc opal structure to a desired operational frequency. This last property may be important for the manufacturing process. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
