In this work we present an introduction to photonic
crystals by discussing the basic concepts and principles behind these
artificial materials, as well as their abilities to control light and
enable unusual optical phenomena. We will focus on specific examples
including (1) negative refraction of light, (2) the superprism effect
(anomalous electromagnetic dispersion), and (3) the possibility of
superlensing (subwavelength focusing). These are very general results
based on direct solutions of Maxwell's equations, and can consequently
be of relevance to many areas of science and technology.
