To decay or not to decay - or both ! quantum mechanics of spontaneous emission

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We discuss calculations of spontaneous emission from quantum dots in photonic crystals and show how the decay depends on the intrinsic properties of the emitter as well as the position. A number of fundamentally different types of spontaneous decay dynamics are shown to be possible, including counter intuitive situations in which the quantum dot decays only partially.
