This book provides the theoretical background required for modelling photonic crystals and their optical properties, while presenting the large variety of devices where photonic crystals have found application. As such, it aims at building bridges between optics, electromagnetism and solid state physics. This second edition includes the most recent developments of two-dimensional photonic crystal devices, as well as some of the last results reported on metamaterials.

In Photonic Crystals: Towards Nanoscale Photonic Devices, Jean-Michel Lourtioz and his colleagues have come out with an impressive major valume that covers many of the main themes of photonic crystals... The English version, thanks to translator Pierre-Noel Favennec, has been worth the wait... Overall, Photonic Crystals is an excellent book that can serve as an introductory text and a reference for graduate students and researchers.

From the reviews of the second edition:
"This comprehensive book is the excellent picture of modern view on the photonic crystals then today day and future. The wide covering of corresponding theoretical, model and experimental methods, and also broad spectrum applications of the photonic crystals allow one to recommend this book for students, engineers and specialists studying and working in different regions of nanotechnologies, nanomaterials and related scientific areas."
