We analyzed theoretically and studied experimentally the sum-frequency generation and four-wave-mixing processes under the noncollinear geometry of interaction in finite-length periodic photonic crystals. The efficiency of the surface and the bulk mechanisms of sum-frequency generation are compared. It is shown that surface and bulk mechanisms cannot be separated on the polarization of the sum-frequency signal only but that the angular dependencies of the sum-frequency signal intensity enable us to separate them. The excitation of inhomogeneous waves at the four-wave-mixing frequency of ω3=2ω1-ω2 is discussed and demonstrated.
