We survey basic quantum optical processes that undergo modifications in photonic crystals doped with resonant atoms: (a) Solitons and multi-dimensional localized 'bullets' propagating at photonic band gap frequencies. These novel entities differ substantially from solitons in Kerr-nonlinear photonic crystals. (b) Giant photon-photon cross-coupling that can give rise to fully entangled two-photon states. We conclude that doped photonic crystals have the capacity to form efficient networks for high-fidelity classical and quantum optical communications.
