Abstract

We analyze light self-confinement induced by multiple nonlinear resonances in a two-dimensional χ(2) photonic crystal. With reference to second-harmonic generation in a hexagonal lattice, we show that the system can not only support two-color (1+1)D solitary waves with enhanced confinement and steering capabilities but also enable novel features such as wavelength-dependent soliton routing.
