One-dimensional anisotropic photonic crystals and microcavities based on birefringent porous silicon are fabricated. The reflectance spectra demonstrate the presence of photonic band gap and microcavity modes with spectral positions tunable upon the sample azimuthal rotation around its normal and/or rotation of polarization plane of incident light. Simultaneous enhancement of secondand third-harmonic generation at the photonic band-gap edge due to the phase matching is observed. The angular
