Papers and Publications

The links below lead to semi-exhaustive listings of the journal articles published by group members, divided into articles that are mostly about photonics and articles that are mostly about atomic/electronic systems. For each paper we include links to the abstracts, a bibTeX entry, the official web page or document identifier (DOI) for the journal publication, and in some cases links to a PDF copy of the article.

Photonics PapersAtom/Electron Papers

(These listings omit many papers published in conference proceedings, since in most cases the same material is later published in a "real" journal.)

See also the publication lists of professors Yoel Fink, Steven G. Johnson, and Marin Soljacic at MIT. You can find another historical catalogue of Prof. Joannopoulos' publications as part of his listing as one of the ISI's "Most Highly Cited" scientists.

If there are any missing papers, please send an email with the reference to the ab-initio webmasters. The listings were generated with the help of bibtex2html, a fine free tool for this sort of thing.

  • S. G. Johnson and J. D. Joannopoulos, Photonic Crystals: The Road from Theory to Practice (Kluwer, Boston, 2002). (Buy it from Kluwer or Amazon.) This book is actually a reprint of of SGJ's PhD thesis, and is mainly a collection of several journal articles available above. It is superseded by the Molding the Flow of Light second edition.
