Spontaneous Emission rate Alteration in Photonic Crystal Waveguides and Photonic Crystal Microavitites

Thomas Søndergaard

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Spontaneous emission in a number of two-dimentional photonic crystals relative to a homogeneous dielectric is modelled using the fermi Golden rule and the position-dependent photon density of states. Futhermore, numerical results will be presented for the rate of spontaneous emission in waveguides and microavities, where the design is based on introducing a defect in a two-dimensional photonic crystal.
