Research on high-tech “photonic band-gap materials” is growing by leaps and bounds, from 40 papers published in 1993 to more than 460 in 2000. That's according to the Photonic & Sonic Band-Gap Bibliography, a Web page where NASA Jet Propulsion Lab chemist Jonathan Dowling tracks findings on these latticelike structures, which transmit specific light or sound waves. The materials may someday be used for optical Internet networks or walls that can screen certain sounds. The site lists over 1000 publications, along with books, reports, and computer programs.
