Paper Abstract

Methods of fabrication of the photonic band gap materials are reviewed, advantages of the combined use of templating and self-assembling methods are stressed. The envelope function approach was used to consider the light field in perfect photonic crystal as the zero-order approximation. Then distortion of the photonic structure has been introduced as perturbation. The simple model used in this paper allows consideration of the effects of short-range and long-range irregularities on transmission spectra. The examples of possible application of the suggested modeling approach and micro- and nanofabrication methods include the enhancement of target detectability, as possible functional elements in focal plane arrays of infrared detectors, controlled introduction of defects, prevention certain waves from propagating though or from photonic band gap materials, detection of direction to the light source, control of temperature distribution by thermal management of microstructure, negative permeability at visible frequencies.
