Abstract
We discuss the enhancement of nonlinear functionalities in slow light photonic crystals. We show how slow light in photonic crystals is created, how nonlinear effects scale with the slowdown factor and what limits nonlinear effects in photonic crystals. We review some of the work recently reported in nonlinear optics in slow light photonic crystals and compare the observed effects to those found in other structures such as coupled resonators or photonic nanowires.
