ICMAB Periodical Lecture

By Juan Luís García Pomar, Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting, Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) 

Abstract: In this talk I will present conceptual studies of photonic crystals and metamaterials. It is highlighted that the band-gap phenomenon of photonic crystals structures is coming from the periodicity of structure, while a metamaterial can be effectively accomplished using the electric and magnetic dipole moments, where the periodicity may not be a big factor. I will demonstrate some photonic crystals properties as selfwaveguiding and negative refraction and I will show some metamaterial architectures exhibiting exciting photonic properties with applications in light harvesting and sensing that have been fabricated using soft nanoimprinting lithography and self-assembly.
