Abstract

We present a numerical study of a finite photonic band gap structure with a χ(3) nonlinearity that couples two input pump beams at frequencies ω1 and ω2. We show that in this configuration a variety of all-optical devices can be obtained: an optical transistor, a double switch, and a dynamical switch.
