Development of Functionally Structured Materials: Ceramic Photonic Crystals and Fractals
Functionally structured material is a tailored material to have unique geometric structures and create new functions or high performances. Design and fabrication of 3D ceramic photonic crystals and fractals using CAD/CAM stereolithography are demonstrated as well as their unique functions of reflection and localization of electromagnetic waves as typical examples of functionally structured materials. The outlook of functionally structured materials is briefly discussed.
