  1. Atom-photon Interactions In 1D Photonic Crystals: From cQED to band-gap physics

    05 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jonathan Hood

    We investigate opportunities that emerge from the integration of cold atoms with nanoscopic photonic crystal waveguides (PCWs). PCWs enable the light-matter interaction to be engineered for both trapping and strong atom-photon coupling, thereby opening new avenues for novel quantum transport and...

  13. Three-Dimensional Photonic Crystals

    11 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Minghao Qi

    A photonic crystal (PhCs) is typically a composite of a high-dielectric-constant material (e.g. Si) and a low-constant one (e.g. SiO2 or air), arranged periodically in space. Two dimensional examples include a hexagonal lattice of air holes drilled in a Si slab, or a set of Si rods at square...
