Photonic Crystals: Molding the Flow of Light
Since it was first published in 1995, Photonic Crystals has remained the definitive text for both undergraduates and researchers on photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling the

Existence of a photonic band gap in two dimensions
A systematic theoretical investigation is undertaken in order to identify a two‐dimensional periodic dielectric structure that has a complete in‐plane photonic band gap for both polarizations. Of the
Guided and defect modes in periodic dielectric waveguides
The nature of guided modes and defect modes in periodic dielectric waveguides is investigated computationally for model systems in two dimensions. It is shown that defect states that exist within the
iNOS-dependent sweating and eNOS-dependent cutaneous vasodilation are evident in younger adults, but are diminished in older adults exercising in the heat.
iNOS and eNOS are the main contributors to NOS-dependent sweating and cutaneous vasodilation, respectively, in physically active younger adults exercising in the heat, and that iNOS inhibition does not alter sweating or cutaneous Vasodilation in exercising physically active older adults.
Intradermal administration of ATP augments methacholine-induced cutaneous vasodilation but not sweating in young males and females.
It is demonstrated that ATP enhances cholinergic cutaneous vasodilation albeit the pattern of response differs between males and females and it is shown that ATP does not modulate Cholinergic sweating.
Novel applications of photonic band gap materials: Low-loss bends and high Q cavities
In this paper we discuss a novel material which has nearly ideal properties at optical frequencies. It combines the low dissipation of a dielectric with the reflectivity of a metal. This material
Observation of surface photons on periodic dielectric arrays.
Using the coherent microwave transient spectroscopy technique, surface waves are shown to exist at frequencies within the photonic band gap for certain lattice terminations by using a prism coupling technique.
An Evaluation of the Physiological Strain Experienced by Electrical Utility Workers in North America
Elevated levels of thermal and cardiovascular strain in electrical utility workers during work in the heat and potentially dangerous levels of hyperthermia during particularly strenuous work are reported.
Evidence for cyclooxygenase‐dependent sweating in young males during intermittent exercise in the heat
It is demonstrated that exercise‐induced sweating at a moderate heat production was similarly reduced when COX and NO synthase were inhibited separately and in combination, and that COX inhibitors (e.g. aspirin) may impair core body temperature regulation and thereby increase the risk of heat‐related illness.
