Disorder in photonic-crystal slab waveguides can cause localization of light. Sapienza et al. observed that the interaction of localized light with embedded quantum dots is so strong that it yields a considerable Purcell enhancement of the emission rate. This coupling between emitters and these "random cavities" warrants a more detailed investigation.
