We analyse parametric processes and harmonic generation in two-dimensional (2D) ? (2) photonic crystals and demonstrate the possibility of multiple phase matching and multicolour parametric frequency conversion in such structures. We suggest a new type of a 2D photonic structure to achieve simultaneous generation of several harmonics; and present both general analytical results and design parameters for 2D periodically poled LiNbO3 photonic crystals. We also discuss tuning properties and the acceptance bandwidth for the second-harmonic generation in 2D ? (2) photonic crystals.
