Paper Abstract

In this paper we analyze a disk-like quantum dot embedded in an engineered two-dimensional (2D) photonic crystal cavity as an artificial atom. In this quantum dot electron and hole form an exciton where photon and electron-hole bound state can interact. Within the engineered electromagnetic vacuum of the PBG material, the exciton can emit and reabsorb a virtual poton. If the exciton energy lies near in the photonic band gap edge the exciton level splits into two levels. The dressed state exciton exhibits a lower energy than that of bare exciton. Here energy associated with dressed exction is evaluated.
