This booklet addresses man made fabrics together with photonic crystals (PC) and metamaterials (MM).
The first half is dedicated to layout strategies: unfavourable permeability and permittivity for detrimental refraction, periodic constructions, transformation optics.
The moment half issues notebook and MM in cease band regime: from cavities, courses to excessive impedance surfaces. irregular refraction, under one and unfavourable, in notebook and MM are studied in a 3rd half, addressing super-focusing and cloaking.
Applications for telecommunications, lasers and imaging platforms also are explored.

Their emergence in this area of wave propagation control slightly predates the notion of “metamaterials”, since it goes back to the early eighties and the works of Eli Yablonovitch, proposing a new crystal, named “Yablonovite”. What originally sparked the scientific community’s interest was the ability to artificially conceive devices allowing us to stop the propagation of light or of electromagnetic waves in the three directions of space over the whole spectrum: the creation of a complete band gap, made from apparently transparent building blocks when taken separately.
We will focus in detail on such techniques, used in the case of dielectric photonic crystals, later on. Here we will look at a conception method close to experimental reality, which will help us to efficiently characterize the fabricated prototypes. As we have seen previously, transmission information is insufficient to prove that a material is left-handed. More information is necessary, such as the evolution of the phase of the transmission coefficient versus frequency, to which we will return, or the study of the dispersion diagram.
