"Introduction to photonic crystals and their possible application to biosensing"
The talk will discuss light interaction with artificial, man-made media, so-called photonic crystals. These crystals are built from two or more materials periodically arranged in space along one, two or three dimensions.
Various photonic and magnetophotonic crystals will be presented and their most interesting fundamental properties will be introduced. What are photonic band gaps, resonant states, immersion spectroscopy, humidity sensing, polarization rotation, surface plasmons, and biosensing by photonic crystals?
These phenomena will be briefly reviewed. Presentation will focus on a new approach to biosensing with high resolution where one-dimensional photonic crystals with metallized surfaces are used as sensor elements.
