Abstract
Band edge effects such as increased density of modes, large field enhancement, and low group velocity will provide highly efficient parametric amplification if the proper phase matching conditions can be established. We derive the phase matching conditions for 1D-photonic band gap structures. Direct integration of Maxwell's equations in the time domain confirms these conclusions, and show that parametric amplification in 1D-photonic band gap structures provide much larger conversion efficiencies compared with quasi-phase-matching.
