Enhanced scattering from nano-particles trapped in photonic crystal membranes

Abstract

We present simulations showing how light scattered by isolated particles increases by a factor 10, when they are placed in photonic crystal membranes. Exploiting this effect, single nano-particles have been detected with an optical microscope.
