We review recent developments in three-dimensional photonic crystals. State of the art fabrication methods, such as layer-by-layer micromachining, self-assembly and various etching, lithographic and holographic techniques are discussed. We present an overview of optical studies of photonic band gap formation, such as reflectivity, transmission and time-resolved pulse propagation experiments. The fundamental issues associated with disorder and absorption are also considered. Progress towards the ultimate goal of full spontaneous emission control is reviewed. Finally, remaining open questions are summarized. To cite this article: A.F. Koenderink et al., C. R. Physique 3 (2002) 67-77

Nous examinons les développements récents dans le domaine des cristaux photoniques tridimensionnels. Nous présentons et discutons des méthodes de fabrication parmi les plus avencées, telles que le micro-usinage couche par couche, l'auto-assemblage et les diverses techniques de gravures, lithographies, holographies. Nous donnons une vue globale des études optiques visant à mettre en évidence la formation de gaps photoniques, telles que la réflectivité, la transmission et les études de propagation d'impulsion résolues en temps. Les questions de fond soulevées par la présence du désordre et de l'absorption sont aussi considérées à leur tour. Nous passons en revue les progrès faits vers le but ultime, à savoir le contrôle total de l'émission spontanée. Finalement, les questions restant ouvertes sont résumées. Pour citer cet article : A.F. Koenderink et al., C. R. Physique 3 (2002) 67-77
