Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Princeton : Princeton University Press, c2008Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xiv, 286 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 27 cm.ISBN: 9780691124568 (acidfree paper); 0691124566 (acidfree paper).Subject(s): Photons | Crystal opticsOnline resources: Contributor biographical information | Publisher description | Table of contents only
Contents:
Introduction -- Electromagnetism in mixed dielectric media -- Symmetries and solid-state electromagnetism -- The multilayer film : a one-dimensional photonic crystal -- Two-dimensional photonic crystals -- Three-dimensional photonic crystals -- Periodic dielectric waveguides -- Photonic-crystal slabs -- Photonic-crystal fibers -- Designing photonic crystals for applications -- A : Comparisons with quantum mechanics -- B : The reciprocal lattice and the brillouin zone -- C : Atlas of band gaps -- D : Computational photonics.
Summary: Addresses the discovery of photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. This book shows that many of the properties of an electron in a semiconductor crystal can apply to a particle of light in a photonic crystal. It offers a treatment of the traditional multilayer film.
