Abstract: Modern demands for high speed telecommunication and data processing have created the need for advanced materials that allow active manipulation of light waves. Subsequent research has shown that photonic crystals provide excellent candidates to accommodate these needs. Photonic crystals are a relatively new class of materials in which the refractive index is periodic in 1, 2 or 3 dimensions. This periodicity gives rise to a photonic band gap which in turn provides selective reflection of certain wavelengths of light. Another interesting property of photonic crystals is the anomalous dispersion that occurs close to the photonic band gap (i.e. at the band edge). The anomalous dispersion causes the group velocity of light to decrease considerably, allowing stronger interactions between the travelling light and the material of which the photonic crystal consists
