An extension of the second quantization scheme based on the quasinormal-modes theory to one-dimensional photonic band gap (PBG) structures is discussed. Such structures, treated as-double open optical cavities. are studied as part of a compound closed system including the electromagnetic radiative external bath. The electromagnetic field inside the photonic crystal is successfully represented by a new class of modes called quasinormal modes. Starting from this representation we introduce the Feymnan's propagator to calculate the decay rate of a dipole inside a PBG structure. related to the density of modes,. in,the presence of the vacuum fluctuations outside the one-dimensional cavity.
