Abstract

We investigate four wave mixing in photonic crystal wire microresonators realized in an isotropic medium. One-dimensional optical parametric oscillators are numerically analyzed by solving Maxwell’s equations in all dimensions and including material dispersion as well as nonlinear polarization.
