not yet rated|write a review
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 inconfined solid state structures: microcavities. Realisations include planar and pillar microcavities, whispering gallery modes, and photonic crystals. The microcavities represent a unique 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 having a general physical background, but in particular to undergraduate and graduate students at physics faculties.

Editorial Reviews

"Starting with the basic physics of microcavities, quantum optics, and excitons, the reader is quickly led to the cutting edge of present-day research in a friendly, tutorial style. The book includes biographical sketches of the key personalities, together with a number of amusing cartoons toillustrate the physics, both of which add considerably to its appeal." --Contemporary Physics
