Photonic Crystals : Optical Properties, Fabrication & Applications Hardback
Edited by William L. Dahl
Photonic crystals are periodic optical nanostructures that are designed to affect the motion of photons in a similar way that periodicity of a semiconductor crystal affects the motion of electrons.
Photonic crystals occur in nature and in various forms have been studied scientifically for the last 100 years.
Photonic crystals are attractive optical materials for controlling and manipulating the flow of light.
One dimensional photonic crystals are already in widespread use in the form of thin-film optics with applications ranging from low and high reflection coatings on lenses and mirrors to colour changing paints and inks.
This book presents topical research data in the study of photonic crystals.
