Consisting of dielectric microstructures with periodicity of roughly half the wavelength of light, PBG materials scatter photons in a manner similar to the scattering of electrons by the crystalline array of atoms in a semiconductor.
The resulting gap in the electromagnetic spectrum provides a unique environment in which unwanted pathways for electromagnetic wave propagation are removed and desired ones can be selectively engineered, through defects in the photonic crystal lattice.
In this way, a PBG material provides a robust platform for the integration of passive optical circuitry and active light emitting devices onto a compact optical micro-chip. Moreover, the electromagnetic density of states on the optical micro-chip can be engineered through suitable crystal defect architectures.
This enables highly frequency selective changes in the rate of spontaneous emission of light from atoms whose resonance frequency lies within the engineered electromagnetic vacuum. The possibilities outlined above have inspired a worldwide effort to design, fabricate, and characterize a variety of different types of photonic crystals.
Research efforts in Germany have played a leading role in the worldwide effort to realize the promise of photonic band gap materials.
These include the fabrication of two-dimensional and three-dimensional photonic crystals of unprecedented aspect ratio, in single crystal semiconductors such as silicon, using photo-electrochemical etching.
These crystals have provided a platform for pioneering optical experiments both within Germany and internationally. Nevertheless the complex geometries of photonic crystal defect architectures and their concomitant light localization effects, call for the development of novel computational approaches.
One of these, described in this book, is the introduction of Wannier functions the optical analogue of localized atomic orbitals in solid state physics as the basis functions for electromagnetic wave propagation. Finally, a number of practical applications of photonic crystals is beginning to appear.
Two particularly interesting and unique developments are the use of photonic crystals as mirrors and couplers for practical III-V semiconductor based lasers and the integration of a number of such lasers within a photonic crystal micro-chip.

The advantage of airborne wind power is in the ability to sweep more sky for less money, an airborne wind power system that stays below m should still be able to generate electricity for far less than a traditional wind turbine and scale to a level sufficient to help solve the world's energy problems.

One of the most striking features of PhCs is associated with the fact that suitably engineered PhCs may exhibit frequency ranges over which ordinary linear propagation is forbidden, irrespective of direction.
These photonic band gaps PBGs [1—3] lend themselves to numerous applications in linear, nonlinear and quantum optics. Similarly, the incorporation of nonlinear materials into PBG structures is the basis for novel solitary wave propagation for frequencies inside the PBG. In the case of lattice—periodic Kerr—nonlinearities, the threshold intensities and symmetries of these solitary waves depend on the direction of propagation [6—8], whereas in the case of nonlinear waveguiding structures embedded in a 2D PBG material, the propagation characteristics strongly depend on the nature of the waveguides .
Finally, the existence of complete PBGs allows one to inhibit spontaneous emission for atomic transition frequencies, deep in the PBG  and leads to strongly non—Markovian effects, such as fractional localization of the atomic population for atomic transition frequencies in close proximity to a complete PBG [10, 11].
On the solid-state theoretical description of photonic crystals The discovery of superrefractive phenomena such as the superprism effect [12, 13] and the resulting potential applications in telecommunication technology [14, 15] have recently attracted a lot of attention to the highly anisotropic nature of iso—frequency surfaces in the photonic band structure.
Similarly, the tailoring of photonic dispersion relations and associated mode structures, group velocities, group velocity dispersions GVDs and effective nonlinearities through judiciously designed PhCs, allows one to explore regimes of nonlinear wave propagation in PhCs that hitherto have been virtually inaccessible.
Photonic crystals with embedded defects, such as microcavities and waveguiding structures, hold tremendous potential for the creation of photonic integrated circuits.
As in virtually any nano—photonic system, a careful theoretical analysis is of paramount importance when interpreting experimental data, and when predicting and realizing novel physical phenomena in PhCs. While these are perfectly legitimate approaches, which rest on some 30 years of experience, these techniques do require substantial computational resources and, as a consequence, modeling has been restricted to selected small scale PhC circuits.Photoelectrochemical data were measured using a W xenon light source (Oriel, ) that was focused to give mW cm −2 (1 sun at AM G).
The J - V characteristics of the cell under these conditions were determined by externally biasing the cell and measuring the generated photocurrent.

A direct microinjection of custom ZFN mRNAs into embryos led to the successful mutagenesis of the endogenous epidermal color locus BmBlos2 but failed for the locus Bmwh3. However, it is a sizable challenge to produce custom ZFNs with high specificity and activity.
