n 1998, driven by the goal of discovering the “perfect mirror”, a surface that reflects lights of all wavelengths and from all angles, a group of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology revealed a simple solution to a seemingly impossible problem. Yoel Fink, Joshua Winn and Shanhui Fan (advised by Professors John Joannopoulos and Edwin Thomas) discovered a new type of planar reflector which allowed for the first time to combine the best features of all known mirrors and achieved “omnidirectional reflectivity”: the perfect mirror. This discovery was published in Science in November 1998, and its practical significance was captured in the abstract: “Because the omnidirectionality criterion is general, it can be used to design omnidirectional reflectors in many frequency ranges of interest. Potential uses depend on the geometry of the system. For example, coating of an enclosure will result in an optical cavity. A hollow tube will produce a low-loss, broadband waveguide…..”
