Abstract
We numerically investigate nonlinear pulse propagation in finite, 1-d photonic crystals, and highlight novel properties that may help pave the way to a new class of high-efficiency nano-devices. We show that phase matching conditions for multiple wavelength generation and interactions can be achieved by judiciously combining material's index dispersions and geometrical features. We also show that enhanced nonlinear interactions can occur with efficiencies three orders of magnitude larger with respect to bulk materials having the same lengths and nonlinearity. Finally, we suggest potential applications as miniaturized second and third harmonic generators, nonlinear mirrors, parametric amplifiers, and optical switchers.
