Abstract

We study slow light pulse propagation in a photonic crystal structure consisting of a dispersive and absorptive dielectric material and compare it with the constant wave case. The group index and the trasmission are investigated for the example of an ensemble of semiconductor quantum dots embedded in a photonic crystal waveguide by FDTD Maxwell-Bloch simulations. The total group index scales linearly with the material based group index whicle the transmission has a power dependency on the material based absorption coefficient.
