We will study the nonlinear effects caused by electromagnetic waves confined in optical micro cavities. The cavities will be fabricated by optical lithography processes in silica substrates, which present third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility. We will study the relationship between the infrared optical modes of these cavities and the third harmonic generation.
