We report the realization of a new class of artificial media termed Photonic Hypercrystals that combine the large photonic density of states in hyperbolic metamaterials with the light scattering efficiency of photonic crystals. This new class of artificial photonic media is used to demonstrate enhancement in spontaneous emission rate by 20x and out coupling enhancement by 100x from quantum dots embedded inside the medium.
