Paper Abstract

This paper reviews and introduces the fundamentals of photonic bandgap crystal, nano-fabrication technologies and the potential applications of new generation optical devices for telecommunication applications. The integration of MEMS with photonic bandgap crystal promises greater flexibility because of the greater control over the properties of photonic crystals than over the electronic properties of semiconductors. The photonic bandgap crystals technology is expected to an even greater role in the 21st century, particularly in the optical-communications industry where photonic crystals could address many problems that currently constrain the integration technology of optical device and system.
