Abstract
We demonstrate optical encoding in an atomic device, considered as a key component in quantum computers. The atomic device consists of a three-level atom embedded in photonic crystals witout external driving lasers. We find that a large amount of population trapping in the upper levels of the atom can be achieved, which is relevant for a strong optical memory effect. Furthermore, the trapped populations keep a memory of the initial atomic state including two-state quantum information, so that the atomic device can be used for a quantum bit encoding the quantum information.
