Abstract

We demonstrate a new method to generate second-harmonic Talbot effect through degenerate Cherenkov radiation in one-dimension anomalous-dispersion-like nonlinear photonic crystals. In anomalous-dispersion-like medium, the degenerated nonlinear Cherenkov radiation can be achieved and is parallel to domain walls, of which the intensity is adjusted by the second-order nonlinear coefficient. In this system the one-dimension nonlinear photonic crystal can be regarded as a nonlinear grating, which is necessary for nonlinear Talbot effect. This is a new method to generate enhanced nonlinear Talbot effect in addition to the quasi-phase-matching technique reported previously.
