Purcell effect and Lamb shift as interference phenomena

Rybin, Mikhail V.; Mingaleev, Sergei; Limonov, Mikhail F.; Kivshar, Yuri


The Purcell effect and Lamb shift are two well-known physical phenomena which are usually discussed in the context of quantum electrodynamics, with the zero-point vibrations as a driving force of those effects in the quantum approach. Here we discuss the classical counterparts of these quantum effects in photonics, and explain their physics trough interference wave phenomena. As an example, we consider a waveguide in a planar photonic crystal with a side-coupled defect, and demonstrate a...[Show more]
