Photonic Crystals: The Road from Theory to Practice [Steven G. Johnson, John D. The book also explains that they also signify a return to the ideal of an. About this book. Photonic Crystals: The Road from Theory to Practice explores the theoretical road leading to the practical application of photonic band gaps. Photonic Crystals is the first book to address one of the newest and most exciting developments in physics--the discovery of photonic band-gap materials and.
Winner of several awards, Prof. He is also an executive council member of the Chinese Optics Society, director of Fundamental Optics Division, and executive council member of the Chinese Physical Society.
Equations are well explained and often completely avoided in order to increase the readability of the book. One should take into consideration that the principles of photonic crystals cannot be explained without physics, and therefore the quality of this book remains intact and could very well serve as a textbook for future physicists.

Here, one- to three-dimensional photonic lasers are explained along with laser oscillations produced by a variety of microcavity methods. Metallodielectric and liquid-crystal photonic lasers are equally well illustrated.
Chapter 7 introduces logic devices based on photonic crystals. Chapter 8 concludes the book by presenting possible applications, including gas, chemical, fluid, and cell sensing; their workings are very well described from a fundamental point of view. The diagrams and illustrations are appropriate and eye catching.
There are ample references; thus readers are able to find more detailed information to satisfy their curiosity if the book does not suffice.
The table of contents and back-cover description for the second edition can be found on the publisher's web site.
