    We study how to suppress multiphoton emission background in QED against radiative emission of a neutrino pair (RENP) from atoms. We pursue the possibility of background suppression using the photonic band structure of periodic dielectric media, called photonic crystals. The modification of photon emission rate in photonic crystal waveguides is quantitatively examined to clarify the condition of background-free RENP.
