Recently metallic two and three dimensional photonic crystals ͑PCs͒ have been studied with the focus on using such structures in incandescent lighting and thermal photovoltaic applications. They exhibit a metallic band gap for low frequencies as well as structural band gaps. Especially the metallic band gap allows to block the infrared transmission(More)
This paper discusses the fundamentals, applications, potential, limitations, and future perspectives of polarized light reflection techniques for the characterization of materials and related systems and devices at the nanoscale. These techniques include spectroscopic ellipsometry, polarimetry, and reflectance anisotropy. We give an overview of the various(More)
Electron-phonon interactions of free charge-carriers in doped pi-conjugated polymers are conceptually described by 1-dimensional (1D) delocalization. Thereby, polaronic transitions fit the 1D-Froehlich model in quasi-confined chains. However, recent developments in conjugated polymers have diversified the backbones to become elaborate heterocylcic(More)
