Microcavities, Paperback / softback Book



Rapid development of microfabrication and assembly of nanostructures has opened up many opportunities to miniaturize structures that confine light, producing unusual and extremely interesting optical properties.

This book addresses the large variety of optical phenomena taking place in confined solid state structures: microcavities.

Realisations include planar and pillar microcavities, whispering gallery modes, and photonic crystals.

The microcavities represent aunique laboratory for quantum optics and photonics.

They exhibit a number of beautiful effects including lasing, superfluidity, superradiance, entanglement etc.

Written by four practitioners strongly involved in experiments and theories of microcavities, it is addressed to any interested reader havinga general physical background, but in particular to undergraduate and graduate students at physics faculties.
