Dipole Emission in Finite Photonic Bandgap Structures: An Exactly Solvable OneDimensional Model
Abstract
I consider an exact model of atomic spontaneous dipole emission and classical dipole radiation in a finite photonic bandgap structure. The full 3D or 2D problem is reduced to a finite 1D model, and then this is solved for analytically using algebraic matrix transfer techniques. The results give insight to the electromagnetic emission process in periodic dielectrics, quantitative predictions for emission in 1D dielectric stacks, and qualitative formulas for the 2D and 3D problem.
