We report a large enhancement of third-harmonic generation in the one-dimensional dielectric photonic-crystal-based amorphous nanocavity. The enhancement took place at the frequency of defect mode and was a pure χ(3) nonlinear process. A great increase of third-harmonic intensity up to approximately five orders of magnitude was demonstrated, which was attributed to field localization in the range of nanocavity.
