About this book


Photonic Crystals are the newest types of optical material being developed for commercial applications in industry. They are likely to provide an exciting new tool for the manipulations of photons and have received the attention of both academia and industry. Roadmap on Photonic Crystals gives a detailed explanation of the background of photonic crystals, the theories behind them, numerical simulations, crystal structures, fabrication processes, evaluation methods and proposed applications. This also includes a roadmap addressing future development and applications.
Industrial scientists, post-doctoral researchers and graduate students will find Roadmap on Photonic Crystals a useful tool in the understanding of the critical aspects of photonic crystals.

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

"The main purpose of the book was to help promote the development of commercially available applications of photonic crystals in industry. It was based on proposals put forth by a Japanese association of optics (Optoelectronic Industry and Technology Development Association, OITDA) as a project called ‘Breakthrough Forum in Optics in Japan’. The book is useful to both graduate students and post-doctoral researchers at universities, as well as industrial scientists." (Günter Mayer, Optik, Issue 116, 2005)
