Light Emission and Localization in Photonic Clusters and Random Lasers

Project Member(s): Botten, L.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2002

Summary: Recent experimental advances have exhibited surprising optical properties of artificial and natural systems structured on the scale of the wavelength of light. We will model numerically such systems, providing insights into the way radiation from atoms placed in them can be changed, light scattering can lead to lasers without mirrors, their fine structure can result in colours which never fade, and light can be localized or trapped in three dimensions.''
