Photonic crystals

  1. Apr 11, 2005 #1

    I would like good information about photonic crystals.
    Does anyone know where to find this? I would like the text to begin at the basic concepts. The only Solid stat physics book i have is "Introduction to solid state physics" 7th Edition by Kittel and it doesn´t say much about this.

    Good solid state physics webpages with all the basic concepts and olso with deeper knowledge is also of interest.

    Thankful for help!

    J. D. Joannopoulos, R. D. Meade, and J. N. Winn, Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light (Princeton Univ. Press, 1995).

    This is the text referenced in 90% of papers on photonic crystals.
