Abstract

Femtosecond laser pulses with suitable pulse areas are shown to decelerate and stop inside a resonant photonic crystal. The release of the stored fields can be achieved through pulse collision by use of an external optical pulse as a control field. The duty cycle efficiency of the storage and release of light is shown to be as much as 96%. The proposed technique is applied to a real photonic system with finite thickness of atomic layers.
