A photonic band gap (PBG) crystal is a structure that could manipulate beams of light in the same way semiconductors control electric currents. Photonic bandgap fibers are optical fibers where a photonic bandgap effect rather than a core region with increased refractive index is utilized for guiding light. The band gap in photonic crystals represents the forbidden energy range where wave behaving photons can not be transmitted through the material.
