Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present one-dimensional photonic crystal waveguides which can stably trap neutral atoms and achieve single-atom reflectivities of r0 & 0:9, as well as experimental progress towards fabrication and optical testing of such structures.
