Introduction

This E-Book covers the research and the development of a novel generation of photonic devices for sensing applications. The E-Book starts with a brief review of basic photonic crystal (PhC) structure related concepts and describes the numerical and technological tools useful in the design and fabrication of devices based on PhCs. Next, the E-Book provides a selection of crossover topics emerging in the scientific community as breaking through researches, technologies and sciences for the development of novel technological platforms for physical, chemical and biological sensing. The E-Book ends with a description of the main PhC sensors to date by representing many of the exciting sensing applications that utilize photonic crystal structures.
