In this Chapter, we provide a compact overview of possible applications of the “guided
resonance” phenomenon in photonic crystal slabs to sensing scenarios. More specifically, starting from the
outline of the basic aspects, we review a number of selected results from the recent topical literature dealing
with applications to displacement, chemical, and biological sensing. Besides theoretical and physical issues,
emphasis is also placed on experimental and technological aspects.
