Abstract

We present results of what is to our knowledge the first experimental demonstration of simultaneous optical wavelength interchange by use of a two-dimensional second-order nonlinear photonic crystal. Fabrication and performance parameters of a 1535–1555-nm wavelength interchange nonlinear photonic crystal fabricated in lithium niobate are discussed.
