Abstract: Beginning with a recently proposed bidirectional beam propagation method based on scattering operators, we develop an accurate and efficient method for the analysis of periodic microstructured waveguides in a nonlinear regime. This novel numerical tool allows us to describe the role played by losses that are due to diffraction and the effects of the finite size of the beams in nonlinear optical devices with strong lateral confinement of the optical intensity. We demonstrate the effectiveness and the efficiency of our method with numerical examples. (C) 2003 Optical Society of America.
