Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Schematic representation of the z-positive and z-negative propagating fields that are involved in the nonlinear interaction we consider. The thick solid arrows represent the incident fields, while the dashed arrows represent the fields that appear because of multiple reflections in the periodic structure. The thin arrows represent the fields generated via the nonlinear interaction.

FIG. 2.

Amplitude conversion for the difference frequency generation at as a function of the thickness of the nonlinear layer in a 1D PC similar to the one schematically shown in Fig. 1, in the z-positive direction (thin dashed line), in the z-negative direction (thick dashed line), in the z-positive direction for the nonphotonic crystal case (solid thin line), and in the z-negative direction also for the nonphotonic crystal case (solid thick line).

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Amplitude conversion for the difference frequency generation (left-hand side scale) in the z-negative direction at as a function of the wavelength of the field at for a 1D PC similar to the one schematically shown in Fig. 1, when all source contributions are considered (thick solid line), when only the contribution from the source term given in Eq. (2a) is nonzero (thick dotted line), when only the contribution from the source term given in Eq. (2c) is nonzero (thick dashed line), and when in the nonphotonic crystal case (thick long-dashed line). Transmission (right-hand side axis) as a function of the wavelength for the field (thin dashed line).

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Amplitude conversion for the difference frequency generation (left-hand side scale) in the z-positive direction at as a function of the number of periods, for the same PC considered in Figs. 2 and 3, is shown at (thick solid line) and when in the nonphotonic crystal (thick long-dashed line). Reflectivity (right-hand side scale) at as a function of the number of periods (thin dashed line).
