Abstract/Summary A planar Fabry-Perot structure, in which an optical cavity is situated between a perfect mirror and a thin dielectric layer acting as a low-transmission mirror to the external region, was used to study the modification of spontaneous emission rates, and, for this purpose, the case of a microcavity. The results of a fully quantum treatment of the contribution of trapped modes to the total spontaneous emission rate are presented. For a high Q Fabry-Perot microcavity of the simple type, it was found that for both normal and parallel orientations of the atomic dipole matrix element, the trapped mode contribution is negligible for all atomic positions in the microcavity, so that almost all the energy radiated goes into the traveling modes.
