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...
