Photonic Crystals: Towards Nanoscale Photonic Devices by Jean-Michel Lourtioz, Henri Benisty, Vincent Berger,

By Jean-Michel Lourtioz, Henri Benisty, Vincent Berger, Jean-Michel Gerard, Daniel Maystre, Alexei Tchelnokov, Pierre de Fornel, Dominique Pagnoux

Like the periodical crystalline power in solid-state crystals determines their houses for the conduction of electrons, the periodical structuring of photonic crystals results in envisioning the opportunity of attaining a regulate of the photon flux in dielectric and metal fabrics. using photonic crystals as a cage for storing, filtering or guiding mild on the wavelength scale therefore paves the best way to the realisation of optical and optoelectronic units with final homes and dimensions. this could give a contribution towards assembly the calls for for a better miniaturisation that the processing of an ever expanding variety of facts calls for. Photonic Crystals intends to supply scholars and researchers from various fields with the theoretical heritage wanted for modelling photonic crystals and their optical homes, whereas even as proposing the massive number of units, from optics to microwaves, the place photonic crystals have discovered functions. As such, it goals at development bridges among optics, electromagnetism and solid-state physics. This booklet used to be written via six experts of nanophotonics, and was once coordinated via Jean-Michel Lourtioz, head of the Institut d'?lectronique Fondamentale in Orsay and coordinator of the French examine community in Nanophotonics.
