This book presents in detail the fundamental theoretical background necessary to understand the unique optical phenomena arising from the crystalline nature of photonic-crystal structures and their application across a range of disciplines. Organized to take readers from basic concepts to more advanced topics, the book covers:
Preliminary concepts of electromagnetic waves and periodic media
Numerical methods for analyzing photonic-crystal structures
Devices and applications based on photonic bandgaps
Engineering photonic-crystal dispersion properties
Fabrication of two- and three-dimensional photonic crystals
The authors assume an elementary knowledge of electromagnetism, vector calculus, Fourier analysis, and complex number analysis. Therefore, the book is appropriate for advanced undergraduate students in physics, applied physics, optics, electronics, and chemical and electrical engineering, as well as graduate students and researchers in these fields.
