3); the first dealing with fundamental science in the area of photonic band gap materials (Western, lead PI Ian Mitchell); the second with photonic devices (McMaster, lead PI Peter Mascher) and the third also from McMaster (lead PI, Wei-Ping Huang) dealing with large systems.
Emerging technologies such as holey fibers, photonic band gap materials and solutions hold promise of providing alternative methods of transmitting and controlling optical signals in ways that may be commercially important in the future.
One metamaterial that is of particular interest to logisticians is photonic band gap material because it could significantly advance knowledge-on-demand capabilities for logisticians.
Photonic Band Gap Materials One type of metamaterial of particular interest to logisticians is photonic band gap (PBG) materials, which could significantly improve reliability in electronic components.
This is because Ozin's group has now applied their many years of materials chemistry expertise to the challenge of synthesizing 3-D photonic crystals (3-D PCs) with complete photonic band gaps (PBGs) operating at optical wavelengths.
Even the design of materials with photonic band gaps remains rudimentary (SN: 3/28/92, p.
