Novel Photonic Solids for Trapping and Manipulating light for Use in Optical Applications

Photonic solids are materials used to control the flow of light in optical applications, analogous to semiconductors in electronic applications. Also referred to as photonic band gap materials, they typically consist of a latticework composed of two interpenetrating substances with different indices of refraction (e.g., silicon and air), arranged so...

QUASICRYSTALLINE STRUCTURES AND USES THEREOF

Princeton University Invention # 06-2217Researchers in the Department of Physics, Princeton University have developed an optical device known as an icosahedral photonic quasicrystal. The significance of such a device is that it makes it possible to control which bands of photons are passed through and which are blocked. The studies performed at Princeton...
