    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    We demonstrate how exactly bound cavity modes can be realized in dielectric structures other than 3D photonic crystals. For a microcavity consisting of crossed anisotropic layers, we derive the cavity resonance frequencies, and spontaneous emission rates. For a dielectric structure with dissipative loss and central layer with gain, the β factor of direct spontaneous emission into a cavity mode and the laser threshold is calculated. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
