Where Can I Find Resources for My Photonics Band Gaps Final Project?

In summary, the person needs advice on where to start their project on Photonics band gaps, which involves writing a 10-page paper. They are concerned about being asked questions about the subject that are not included in their paper, so they want to learn as much as possible. They are not very knowledgeable about Photonics and are looking for good online sources to learn from. The speaker suggests starting with a textbook in the library for a basic understanding and then using internet sources to see recent research in the field.

I need some advice for where to start my project which is about Photonics band gaps. I need to write a 10 pages paper on this subject. I am sure I will be asked a lot about the subject which won't even be in my paper so I need to learn about it as much as I can. But,unfortunatelly I don't know much about Photonics. Do you know any good webpages that gives information about this ?

thanks

Personally I'd start in the library and find a good textbook with some background about photonics in it then perhaps a couple of recent papers on the subject. Its important you get a grounding even if it is the most basic in the subject area first from an introductory text. It is also important for the project since you'll have to show usually in the opening sections what the physical overview of the subject is.

The internet sources are perhaps best for seeing where recent research is heading in that particular field and I wouldn't use it for any more research than that.
