Nonlinear Photonic Crystals Toward All-optical Technologies
Nonlinear photonic crystals were studied. Photonic crystals, an analog of semiconductors for light waves, are composite periodic dielectric materials that provide novel and unique ways to control many aspects of electromagnetic radiation. The nonlinear properties of photonic crystals and photonic-crystal waveguides offer an opportunity to create an all-optical analogs of diodes and transistors.
