The Photonic Crystals Group is a multidisciplinary team doing basic research in photonic crystals and related systems. While Materials Science is capital in our research some Fundamental Physics aspects are also central.


Our main interest lies in the design and fabrication of complex photonic materials with improved properties. These include ordered (crystals), disordered (glasses) and intermediate materials whose degree of disorder can be controlled and is also correlated. In this regard, we cover the synthesis and processing of materials and study light transport, generation and interference to be used in different applications.
