22 September 1999 Photonic crystals: concepts, devices, and applications
Author Affiliations +
The original concept of photonic crystals (PCs) was introduced in 1987 by Yablonovitch and John. Since then, there has been a great deal of interest in this field. Extensive research has been reported on the physical concepts, device fabrications, and a wide range of applications. Recent advances in materials engineering and nanofabrication technologies have led to new successful practical realizations of different types of PC structures. In this paper, the concepts, fabrication techniques, devices and applications, and measurement and characterization techniques are reviewed. In addition, future directions in research and development are briefly discussed.
