The feasibility of using quantum dots as a dense resonant medium with large transition dipole moments is analyzed. The possibility of creating one-dimensional photonic crystals containing quantum dots is examined on the basis of published experimental and theoretical data and the basic parameters of such systems are discussed. A numerical solution of the generalized Maxwell–Bloch equations is used to show that the interaction of coherent light pulses with a photonic structure containing quantum dots can be used to create optical logical operations of types that will depend on the spectral properties of the crystal.
