Abstract

Electromagnetic mode selection in periodic dielectric materials may be used to obtain sharp optical features such as suppression and enhancement of the radiation of oscillating dipoles. Periodic dielectric materials may be studied by means of the photonic band gap (PBG) theory.1 In the framework of this theory, we present an experimental study of the second harmonic (SH) generation from a slab of nonlinear molecules embedded in a 1-dimensional periodic dielectric structure truncated by the introduction of a defect in the central period.
