Abstract
Based on the analogy between Schrödinger and Helmholtz equations (or in other words between electron and photon), the concept of photonic crystal has been introduced very recently after an experimental evidence of the existence of transmission gaps in periodic dielectric structures used in the microwave region.. Due to the importance of photonic bad gap structures in practical applications such as inhibition of spontaneous emission in semi-conductor lasers, many experimental and theoretical efforts have been made in the last years in order to investigate the properties of photonic crystals, or to improve the construction of such structures in the visible region. Following a presentation of these structures, it will be shown that the electromagnetic theory is able to provide accurate predictions on the gaps, for both periodic and doped crystals.
