Paper Title:
Quasiperiodic Photonic and Phononic Crystals
  Abstract

The main advantage of quasiperiodicity for the design of photonic and phononic crystals is the arbitrarily high rotational symmetry, which can be achieved without sacrificing a discrete Fourier (Bragg) spectrum. Consequently, the degree of isotropy can be arbitrarily increased leading to omnidirectional bandgaps. These are important for most applications as for instance wave-guides or -shields.
