Speech Title: Application of metamaterial photonic crystal array for confinement of light pulses
Abstract: We have designed for the first time, a Position chirped Photonic crystal fiber (which is made up of metamaterials) having a negative refractive index and being able to confine the light pulse inside it completely. As a consequence, it can be used as a storage device for light pulses. In reality, we cannot completely stop any light pulse and store it, to date. The effectiveness of this structure is; by storing the light pulse we can construct an optical computer, where all the computations will be done in the light domain. It will be much faster than existing electrical computers because of the speed of the light and it is electromagnetic interference-free, noiseless structure. Here the presence of stored light pulse will be considered as "1" and the absence of light pulse is considered as "0".
