We discuss the influence of the optical nanomaterial medium on the character of interaction of atoms with their own radiation field on the example of photonic crystals. It is shown that such effects may lead to changes of energy levels of atoms placed in a periodic dielectric medium of nanometer size.
Keywords: density of states, photonic crystal, energy levels shift.
