Phase matched second harmonic generation from nanostructured metallic surfaces
Planar structures containing oriented and ordered metallic nanoparticles with shapes lacking an inversion centre can act as a nonlinear medium for generation of second harmonic optical radiation by a process whose directional features resemble those of phase matched second harmonic generation (SHG) in bulk media. The nonlinearity of the metallic patterns stems from the asymmetric modulation of the local field inside nanoparticle by electron oscillations and is deeply rooted in the nanostructured nature of the system. The SHG efficiency is inversely proportional to the second power of the nanoparticle size.

Abstract

Planar structures containing oriented and ordered metallic nanoparticles with shapes lacking an inversion centre can act as a nonlinear medium for generation of second harmonic optical radiation by a process whose directional features resemble those of phase matched second harmonic generation (SHG) in bulk media. The nonlinearity of the metallic patterns stems from the asymmetric modulation of the local field inside nanoparticle by electron oscillations and is deeply rooted in the nanostructured nature of the system. The SHG efficiency is inversely proportional to the second power of the nanoparticle size.
