Abstract

We derive an analytical expression for the conversion efficiency of second-harmonic generation (SHG) in a photonic crystal. The results obtained for the undepleted-pump limit allow us to describe the role played by the feedback and dispersion introduced by the photonic crystal and hence to optimize the SHG process.
