"Manipulating emission life times in photonic structures"

Photonic structures (photonic crystals, cavities) can change the
life time and spectrum of spontaneous emission.
We show that by placing the luminescing centres at the right position
inhibition and strong coumpling can be attained.
A crucial role is played by the quantum efficiency of the transition.
