A model to analyze the interaction of the parametric fields being generated in a two-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystal has been developed. The analysis provides details of the interference of the generated wave(s) both inside and in the region just outside the crystal. The results are verified by second-harmonic generation in a LiNbO 3 crystal that has been poled with a tetragonal inverted domain structure.
