Design and construction of advanced and new-born quantum devices and atomic chips motivated scientists to investigate atom light interactions in miniaturized nanostructures. Miniaturization for lab on a chip require enhancement in the interaction efficient volume and thus field enhancements between atomic media and the light. Field enhancement in photonic devices can be achieved in photonic crystal-based structures with defect modes, cavity states, Tamm modes, Bloch modes and so ones. Interaction of these mentioned modes with atoms can open new insights in the new generation quantum devices. In this chapter, this interaction and applications in some quantum mechanically devices will be considered.
