Activity 5 - Photonic Crystal Physics

     The goal of the project is to investigate properties of photonic crystals applied in the microwave and teraherz range. The research consists of developing and improving new fabrication techniques, experiments at millimetre wave and the calculation of different new photonic crystal structures. The investigation includes effects like negative refraction, the slow wave propagation, lefthandness, applications of high dielectric materials or the apperiodic waveguides.
