Abstract

We theoretically predict and numerically demonstrate that narrow beams (of the width of few wavelengths) can be efficiently parametrically amplified in nonlinear photonic crystal (with χ ( 2 ) nonlinearity) tuned to subdiffractive (self-collimating) regimes. We derive relations and give analytic estimations for the efficiency of amplification.
