Periodic nanostructures in photonics facilitate a far-reaching control of light propagation and light–matter interaction. This article
reviews the current status of this subject, including both recent progress and well-established results. The primary focus is on the
basic physical principles and potential applications associated with the existence of Bragg scattering, photonic band structures, and
engineered effective-medium properties in periodic dielectric and metallo-dielectric systems. In addition, we discuss advantages
and limitations of various theoretical and numerical approaches as well as of those fabrication techniques that have specifically been
developed for this field.
