Paper Abstract

The gain in one-dimensional photonic band gap structure, containing active layers, is studied. Nonlinearity of the material, caused by Kerr effect, is taken into account. Nonlinear problem of wave transmission through nonlinear multilayered structure is solved using perturbation method. It is shown, that the gain in photonic band gap structure can be essentially enhanced at the photonic band gap edge in comparison with a bulk material having the same optical thickness.
