ABSTRACTWe describe a technique for obtaining effective second order non-linearity ? in non centro-symmetric Photonic Crystal made from centro-symmetric materials (e.g. glass, Ge or Si). The effect is based on the electric quadrupole transition, strong electromagnetic mode deformation and different contributions to the volume polarization from different parts of the photonic crystal'.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
