Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. This newly expanded and revised edition covers the latest developments in the field, providing the most up-to-date, concise, and comprehensive book available on these novel materials and their applications.

Starting from Maxwell's equations and Fourier analysis, the authors develop the theoretical tools of photonics using principles of linear algebra and symmetry, emphasizing analogies with traditional solid-state physics and quantum theory. They then investigate the unique phenomena that take place within photonic crystals at defect sites and surfaces, from one to three dimensions. This new edition includes entirely new chapters describing important hybrid structures that use band gaps or periodicity only in some directions: periodic waveguides, photonic-crystal slabs, and photonic-crystal fibers. The authors demonstrate how the capabilities of photonic crystals to localize light can be put to work in devices such as filters and splitters. A new appendix provides an overview of computational methods for electromagnetism. Existing chapters have been considerably updated and expanded to include many new three-dimensional photonic crystals, an extensive tutorial on device design using temporal coupled-mode theory, discussions of diffraction and refraction at crystal interfaces, and more. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Photonic Crystals is an indispensable resource for students and researchers.

  • Extensively revised and expanded
  • Features improved graphics throughout
  • Includes new chapters on photonic-crystal fibers and combined index-and band-gap-guiding
  • Provides an introduction to coupled-mode theory as a powerful tool for device design
  • Covers many new topics, including omnidirectional reflection, anomalous refraction and diffraction, computational photonics, and much more.

Review:

"Photonic Crystals is a timely and well-written account of this new field."--Nature

"This book offers elegant full-color illustrations and is superbly produced. This has to be applauded in an era dominated by low-resolution digital images. In summary: Photonics Crystals is a beauty and is highly recommended to photonics, laser, and optical scientist."--Optics Journal

"This text is certainly pitched at a post third-year quantum mechanics, electromagnetism and solid-state physics level in the Australian context and is ideally suited to study at an Honours or a Masters level. [Images freely available from MIT complement this text]. Certainly for all who offer photonics courses, this book should be in your institution's library if not on your shelf."--John Holdsworth, Australian Physics

Endorsement:

"This book is destined to become the classic textbook in the area. It gathers together the fundamental concepts and tools relevant to photonic crystals and presents them with exceptional clarity. I genuinely enjoyed reading it."--Maryanne Large, University of Sydney

"An excellent textbook to be used in physics, chemistry, and engineering. The revised edition of Photonic Crystals fills the gap between the layperson and the expert reader."--Costas M. Soukoulis, Iowa State University
