We propose a high sensitivity photodetection tool at near-infrared frequencies, based on a principle of slowed- and stopped-light in chirped photonic micro/nano-structures. The main goal is to substantially increase the efficiency of photodetection and provide chromatic resolution in infrared photodetection. In particular we concentrate on the design of the chirped photonic micro/nano-structures providing a maximum field enhancement, and frequency dependence of stopped light distribution.
