Optical second harmonic generation (OSHG) in a two-dimension photonic crystal consisting of centro-symmetric dielectric is investigated. The calculation model and analyzing method for OSHG are discussed. Based on Finite Difference–Time Domain algorithm, the electromagnetic field distribution in the structure and the intensity of second harmonic generation along the waveguide are analyzed. The results show that the acute spatial variation of electro-magnetic field results in the radiation of OSHG, and the intensity of OSHG is proportional to the square of the waveguide length. When the beam intensity of the pumping wave with a wavelength of 10.6 µm is 1.3MW/mm2, the power conversion efficiency is 0.268% for a silicon photonic crystal with a length of 40 µm.
