Periodic dielectric structures can interact resonantly with radiation with wavelengths that are comparable to the periodicity length of dielectric lattice. Photonic crystals can stimulate the properties of photons in much same way that ordinary semiconductor and conductor crystals affect the properties of electrons. Properties of electrons in ordinary crystals are much influenced by lattice size and other defects. Thus, the crystals are made of periodic arrays of atoms at atomic length scales.
Photonic crystals occur in form of structural coloration by nature and also in several forms. The photonic crystals can be fabricated in one, two or three dimensions. In case of one-dimension, photonic crystals can be prepared by layers deposited or stuck together which in case of two dimension are made by photolithography.
Another form or crystal is liquid crystal laser. It uses a liquid crystal as a resonating cavity which enables an emission of wavelength and polarization from the active laser medium. Commercially, liquid laser crystals find use in biomedical sensing, display screens and environmental sensing. From the market point of view, crystals find proliferated use in multiple domains and particularly in electronics. The overall scenario of the driving factors signifies that the market is bound to grow at a significant CAGR during the assessment period.
