Kluwer Academic Publishers, Jan 1, 2001 - Medical - 605 pages
The field of photonic band gap (PGB) materials, also called photonic crystals, is an exciting new area in physics and engineering. The materials play a unique role in controlling the propagation of electromagnetic waves, and innovative ways to manipulate such waves can have a profound influence on science and technology. The present book provides a survey of the field of photonic crystals, random lasers and light localization, covering theoretical and experimental aspects as well as applications.
