In photonic circuits photons play the dominant role and they transfer the optical data. With the growth of the photonics technology, a new area started to grow as photonic crystals which now play an important role in designing and manufacturing compact photonic devices. Photonic crystals are structures with alternative dielectric constant in one, two or three dimensions which are called one, two or three dimensional photonic crystals.

Based on a course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this texte remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

These notes introduce some of the basic mathematical and physical tools necessary for theoretical investigations into the thermodynamics properties of light in cavities. It will also be useful for the research teams entering this field of science.
