Long Description

Photonic Crystals is the first book to address one of the newest and most exciting developments in physics--the discovery of photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. Recent discoveries show that many of the properties of an electron in a semiconductor crystal can apply to a particle of light in a photonic crystal. This has vast implications for physicists, materials scientists, and electrical engineers and suggests such possible developments as an entirely optical computer. Combining cutting-edge research with the basic theoretical concepts behind photonic crystals, the authors present to undergraduates and researchers a concise, readable, and comprehensive text on these novel materials and their applications.

The first chapters develop the theoretical tools of photonic crystals in a broad, intuitive fashion, starting from nothing more than Maxwell's equations and Fourier analysis, and include analogies to traditional solid-state physics and quantum theory. There follows an investigation of the unique phenomena that take place within photonic crystals, at defect sites, and at surfaces and interfaces. The authors offer a new treatment of the traditional multilayer film (a one-dimensional photonic crystal), which allows for the extension to higher dimensions and more complex geometries. After exploring the capabilities of photonic crystals to guide and localize light, the authors demonstrate how these notions can be put to work.

By claiming your products, you gain a great deal of control over your products and company information. When you make changes, they don't need to be verified manually and other users cannot make any changes to your data.

Claiming your products is a rather simple process but it does involve a few steps. You simply need to give us a list of your products but then you need to verify your claim by entering a code we send to your email.

You also get to enter information about your company on the claim page. If you have multiple companies, you can control them all on your profile page once they are verified.

After you make your initial claim, we perform some processing on our side. Once the claim process is complete, you get full control over all of your products and company information. You get to control your product details and images. You can modify the contact information for your company and upload a company logo.

To get started with the process, you can search for one of your products and click the CLAIM link found at the bottom of the product information block. You can also go directly to the CLAIM PAGE. Once on that page, simply follow the on screen instructions to complete the claim process.

If you want to send us data about your products instead of simply claiming existing products or entering new information by hand, you can always send us a data file and we can import it for you.
