Plasmonic crystal effects analogous to photonic crystal phenomena such as zone folding and gap opening were observed for edge magnetoplasmons in a two-dimensional electron system with a periodically corrugated boundary at microwave frequencies. Magnetic field dependent photovoltage data provide unequivocal evidence for Bragg reflection. Band gaps up to fifth order were observed. These gaps were investigated as a function of the electron density, the magnetic field, and the periodicity to demonstrate the tunability of the dispersive properties of these plasmonic crystals.
