Slab waveguides with a two-dimensional periodic distribution of the refractive index are proposed and investigated as optical microcavities for efficient parametric oscillations through four-wave mixing in isotropic materials.We carry out a case study based on the complete solution of three-dimensional Maxwell equations, including material dispersion and cubic nonlinear response.
