Abstract: Three-dimensional icosahedral dielectric photonic quasicrystals previously revealed highly structured transmittance spectra and unusual photon transport properties. Using a periodic approximant approach, we show that all these findings are consistent with multiple scattering of light. ©2009 Optical Society of America.
