ABSTRACT We report the influence of photonic stopgaps on two-photon excited emission from highly efficient nonlinear chromophores infiltrated into high-quality photonic crystals. We have observed a sharp decrease (filter effect) in emission within the frequency range and direction of the stopgap as well as sharp enhancement of the two-photon excited emission associated with the stopgap's edge. This effect may be important for the development of low-threshold upconversion lasers. (C) 2002 Optical Society of America.
