Abstract

Photonic crystal behavior of a rotating Bose-Einstein condensate with a triangular vortex lattice is reviewed and a scheme for getting much wider band gaps is proposed. It is shown that photonic band gaps can be widened an order of magnitude more by using a Raman scheme of index enhancement, in comparison to previously considered upper level microwave scheme.
