EuTe possesses the centrosymmetric crystal structure m3m of rocksalt type in which the second-harmonic generation is forbidden in electric dipole approximation but the third-harmonic generation (THG) is allowed. We studied the THG spectra of this material and observed several resonances in the vicinity of the band gap at 2.2-2.5 eV and at higher energies up to 4 eV, which are related to four-photon THG processes. The observed resonances are assigned to specific combinations of electronic transitions between the ground 4f(7) state at the top of the valence band and excited 4f(6)5d(1) states of Eu(2+) ions, which form the lowest energy conduction band. Temperature, magnetic field, and rotational anisotropy studies allowed us to distinguish crystallographic and magnetic-field-induced contributions to the THG. A strong modification of THG intensity for the 2.4 eV band and suppression of the THG for the 3.15 eV band was observed in applied magnetic field. Two main features of the THG spectra were assigned to 5d(t(2g)) and 5d(e(g)) subbands at 2.4 eV and 3.15 eV, respectively. A microscopic quantum-mechanical model of the THG response was developed and its conclusions are in qualitative agreement with the experimental results.; DFG - Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft[YA65/4-1]; RFBR Russian Foundation for Basic Research; FoNE of the European Science Foundation; FAPESP; CNPq; (DAAD) Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst...

Third harmonic generation (THG) has been studied in europium selenide EuSe in the vicinity of the band gap at 2.1-2.6 eV and at higher energies up to 3.7 eV. EuSe is amagnetic semiconductor crystalizing in centrosymmetric structure of rock-salt type with the point group m3m. For this symmetry the crystallographic and magnetic-field-induced THG nonlinearities are allowed in the electric-dipole approximation. Using temperature, magnetic field, and rotational anisotropy measurements, the crystallographic and magnetic-field-induced contributions to THG were unambiguously separated. Strong resonant magnetic-field-induced THG signals were measured at energies in the range of 2.1-2.6 eV and 3.1-3.6 eV for which we assign to transitions from 4 f(7) to 4 f(6)5d(1) bands, namely involving 5d(t(2g)) and 5d(e(g)) states.; Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft [YA65/4-1]; Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft; Russian Foundation for Basic Research; Russian Foundation for Basic Research [10-02-01008]; Russian Academy; Russian Academy; FoNE of the European Science Foundation; FoNE of the European Science Foundation; FAPESP; FAPESP; CNPq; CNPq; Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD); Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD); FWF, Vienna, Austria [I80-N20]; FWF...

Neste trabalho fizemos um estudo da geração de terceiro harmônico (GTH) usando pulsos de femtossegundos (fs). A GTH é uma importante técnica que permite estudar propriedades ópticas não lineares de terceira ordem de materiais. Estudamos a GTH aplicando as técnicas de franjas de Maker e a de varredura-Z em diferentes materiais levando em conta as contribuições de suas interfaces. A técnica de franjas de Maker com GTH permite a determinação de propriedades ópticas lineares e não lineares de volume, mas não de interface, portanto, a técnica de varredura-Z na condição de focalização forte foi implementada para estudar a influência da interface na GTH. Estudamos diversos vidros ópticos (sílica, K10, SK11, LLF1 e LLF6) e também diferentes soluções (acetona, clorofórmio, DMSO e tolueno) em uma cubeta. Em termos de número de interfaces, usando uma lâmina de vidro temos duas, no caso de um sanduíche de dois vidros temos três (entrada, meio e saída) e temos quatro interfaces para a cubeta. Observamos que elas contribuem tanto nas intensidades quanto nos espectros dos terceiros harmônicos (TH) gerados. Dependendo do tipo de interface e do sentido de propagação, tanto a intensidade quanto o espectro do TH são diferentes. Observamos que a reflexão de Fresnel atua significativamente nas diferenças de intensidades da GTH nas interfaces entre dois meios com índices de refração lineares diferentes. Uma interferência construtiva ocorre quando o feixe de laser propaga de um material com índice de refração mais alto para outro com índice mais baixo...

Biologia celular é um novo mundo promissor com enorme impacto social, econômico e na saúde. Organismos vivos são capazes de, produzir a própria energia a partir da luz do sol, se reproduzir, de se auto-reparar, sinalizar e navegar por sinais bioquímicos, biomecânicos, luminosos, térmicos, e outros, e produzir materiais à temperatura ambiente. As possibilidades abertas por essa área incluem, desde bactérias e protozoários usados para destruir células de câncer, regeneração de órgãos inteiros, produção de etanol a partir de algas, e outros. Entretanto, para o entendimento da biologia em seu nível mais profundo, ferramentas de observação não destrutivas fazem-se necessária para seguir os processos celulares durante seu tempo de vida. A óptica tem a única onda não destrutiva capaz de fornecer informações em tempo real com suficiente resolução espacial de eventos acontecendo internamente à célula. Ademais, porque feixes de luz não colidem, a óptica permite a integração de diferentes técnicas capazes de reunir informações simultâneas de processos celulares. Óptica não linear é especialmente adequada para tal, pois não requer marcação ou processamentos especiais de amostras que poderiam destruir...

Gallium selenide (GaSe) is a layered semiconductor and a well-known nonlinear optical crystal. The discovery of graphene has created a new vast research field focusing on two-dimensional materials. We report on the nonlinear optical properties of few-layer GaSe using multiphoton microscopy. Both second- and third-harmonic generation from few-layer GaSe flakes were observed. Unexpectedly, even the peak at the wavelength of 390 nm, corresponding to the fourth-harmonic generation or the sum frequency generation from third-harmonic generation and pump light, was detected during the spectral measurements in thin GaSe flakes.

We study parametric frequency conversion in quadratic nonlinear media with disordered ferroelectric domains. We demonstrate that disorder allows realizing broadband third-harmonic generation via cascading of two second-order quasi-phase matched nonlinear processes. We analyze both spatial and polarization properties of the emitted radiation and find the results in agreement with our theoretical predictions.

Optical properties of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have been extensively studied during the last decade, and much basic knowledge has been accumulated on how light emission, scattering, and absorption occur in the realm of linear optics. However, their nonlinear optical properties remain largely unexplored. Here, we have observed strong third harmonic generation from highly aligned SWCNTs with intense mid-infrared radiation. Through power dependent experiments, we have determined the absolute value of the third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility, ‡ (3) , of our SWCNT film to be 6.92 × 10 -12 esu, which is three orders of magnitude larger than that of the fused silica reference sample we used. Furthermore, through polarization-dependent third harmonic generation experiments, all the nonzero tensor elements of ‡ (3) have also been extracted. The contribution of the weaker tensor elements to the overall ‡ (3) signal has been calculated to be approximately 1/6 of that of the dominant [Special characters omitted.] component. These results open up new possibilities for application of carbon nanotubes in optoelectronics.

We study cascaded harmonic generation of hybrid surface plasmons in integrated planar waveguides composed of a graphene layer and a doped-semiconductor slab. We derive a comprehensive model of cascaded third harmonic generation through phase-matched nonlinear interaction of fundamental, second harmonic and third harmonic plasmonic modes supported by the structure. We show that hybrid graphene-semiconductor waveguides can simultaneously phase-match these three interacting harmonics, increasing the total third-harmonic output by a factor of 5 compared to the non-cascaded regime.

Nonlinear processes are often governed by selection rules imposed by the symmetries of the molecular configurations. The most well-known examples include the role of mirror symmetry breaking for the generation of even harmonics, and the selection rule related to the rotation symmetry in harmonic generation for fundamental beams with circular polarizations. While the role of mirror symmetry breaking in second harmonic generation has been extensively studied in plasmonic systems, the investigation on selection rules pertaining to circular polarization states of harmonic generation has been limited to crystals, i.e. symmetries at the atomic level. Here we demonstrate the rotational symmetry dependent third harmonic generation from nonlinear plasmonic metacrystals. We show that the selection rule can be imposed by the rotational symmetry of meta-crystals embedded into an isotropic organic nonlinear thin film. The results presented here may open new avenues for designing symmetry-dependent nonlinear optical responses with tailored plasmonic nanostructures.; Comment: 13 pages, 3 figures

We present an ab-initio real-time-based computational approach to study nonlinear optical properties in condensed matter systems that is especially suitable for crystalline solids and periodic nanostructures. The equations of motion and the coupling of the electrons with the external electric field are derived from the Berry-phase formulation of the dynamical polarization [Souza et al., Phys. Rev. B 69, 085106 (2004)]. Many-body effects are introduced by adding single-particle operators to the independent-particle Hamiltonian. We add a Hartree operator to account for crystal local effects and a scissor operator to correct the independent particle band structure for quasiparticle effects. We also discuss the possibility of accurately treating excitonic effects by adding a screened Hartree-Fock self-energy operator. The approach is validated by calculating the second-harmonic generation of SiC and AlAs bulk semiconductors: an excellent agreement is obtained with existing ab initio calculations from response theory in frequency domain [Luppi et al., Phys. Rev. B 82, 235201 (2010)]. We finally show applications to the second-harmonic generation of CdTe and the third-harmonic generation of Si.; Comment: 10 pages, 9 figures

Beams that experience third-harmonic generation (THG) also experience Kerr effects. With Kerr effects, beams do not take simple Gaussian shapes, but exhibit nonlinear dynamics. These nonlinear dynamics have an effect on the THG accumulated by focusing and then diverging beams. We formulate a self-consistent and complete set of nonlinear Schroedinger equations for a pair of coupled beams -- a fundamental and its third-harmonic. Numerical simulations show that the Kerr nonlinearities allow some third-harmonic to propagate to the far-field even for zero or negative phase-mismatch. This is because the nonlinear dynamics break the beams' reflection symmetry about the focal plane and therefore increases far-field THG by changing some of the interference from destructive to constructive. THG conversion efficiencies are computed as functions of several beam parameters.; Comment: About 6 pages. 7 Figures. Accepted to Physical Review A

We demonstrate second and third harmonic generation from a GaP substrate 500{\mu}m thick. The second harmonic field is tuned at the absorption resonance at 335nm, and the third harmonic signal is tuned at 223nm, in a range where the dielectric function is negative. These results show that a phase locking mechanism that triggers transparency at the harmonic wavelengths persists regardless of the dispersive properties of the medium, and that the fields propagate hundreds of microns without being absorbed even when the harmonics are tuned to portions of the spectrum that display metallic behavior.

The efficiency of third harmonic generation in cuprous oxide was measured. Intensities followed a non-cubic power law which indicates nonperturbative behavior. Polarization anisotropy of the harmonic generation was demonstrated and related to the third order susceptibility. The results will influence the understanding of harmonic generation in centrosymmetric materials and are potentially relevant to device design and the interpretation of exciton behavior.

We present the first analysis of harmonic generation data where the full potential of the generalized nonlinear Kramers-Kronig (K-K) relations and sum rules is exploited. We consider two published sets of wide spectral range experimental data of third harmonic generation susceptibility on different polymers, the polysilane (frequency range: $0.4-2.4$ $eV$) and the polythiophene (frequency range: $0.5-2.0$ $eV$). We show that, independent truncated dispersion relations connect the real and imaginary part of the moments of the third harmonic generation susceptibility $\omega^{2\alpha}\chi^{(3)}(3\omega; \omega, \omega ,\omega)$, with $\alpha$ ranging from 0 to 3, in agreement with the theory, while there is no convergence if we choose $\alpha=4$. We repeat the same analysis for $\omega^{2\alpha}[\chi^{(3)}(3\omega; \omega, \omega ,\omega)]^{2}$ and show that a larger number of independent K-K relations connect the real and the imaginary part of the function under examination. We also compute the sum rules for the suitable moments of the real and imaginary parts, and observe that only considering higher powers of the susceptibility the correct vanishing sum rules are more precisely obeyed. Sum rules providing explicit information about structural properties of the material seem to require wider spectral range. These constraints are expected to hold for any material and provide fundamental tests of self-consistency that any experimental or model generated data have to obey.; Comment: 37 pages...

A quantum theory of the third-harmonic generation in graphene is presented. An analytical formula for the nonlinear conductivity tensor $\sigma^{(3)}_{\alpha\beta\gamma\delta}(\omega,\omega,\omega)$ is derived. Resonant maxima of the third harmonic are shown to exist at low frequencies $\omega\ll E_F/\hbar$, as well as around the frequency $\omega=2E_F/\hbar$, where $E_F$ is the Fermi energy in graphene. At the input power of a CO$_2$ laser ($\lambda\approx 10$ $\mu$m) of about 1 MW/cm$^2$ the output power of the third-harmonic ($\lambda\approx 3.3$ $\mu$m) is expected to be $\simeq 50$ W/cm$^2$.; Comment: 5 pages, 3 figures

We consider the possibility of observing continuous third-harmonic generation using a strongly driven, single-band one-dimensional metal. In the absence of scattering, the quantum efficiency of frequency tripling for such a system can be as high as 93%. Combining the Floquet quasi-energy spectrum with the Keldysh Green's function technique, we derive the semiclassical master equation for a one-dimensional band of strongly and rapidly driven electrons in the presence of weak scattering by phonons. The power absorbed from the driving field is continuously dissipated by phonon modes, leading to a quasi-equilibrium in the electron distribution. We use the Kronig-Penney model with varying effective mass to establish growth parameters of an InAs/InP nanowire near optimal for third harmonic generation at terahertz frequency range.; Comment: 16 pages, 7 figures

We observe optical third harmonic generation from graphene and few-layer graphite flakes produced by exfoliation. The emission scales with the cube of the intensity of the incident near-infrared femtosecond pulses and has a wavelength that is one-third of the incident wavelength, both consistent with third harmonic generation. We extract an effective third-order susceptibility for graphene that is on the order of 1e-16 square meter per square volt, which is comparable to that for materials that are resonantly excited, but larger than for materials that are transparent at the fundamental and third harmonic wavelengths. By measuring a set of flakes with different numbers of atomic layers, we find that the emission scales with the square of the number of atomic layers, which suggests that the susceptibility of graphene is independent of layer number, at least for a few layers.; Comment: 5 pages, 3 figures

Slow light has attracted significant interest recently as a potential solution for optical delay lines and time-domain optical signal processing. Perhaps even more significant is the possibility of dramatically enhancing nonlinear optical effects due to the spatial compression of optical energy. Two-dimensional silicon photonic-crystal waveguides have proven to be a powerful platform for realizing slow light, being compatible with on-chip integration and offering wide-bandwidth and dispersion-free propagation. Here, we report the slow-light enhancement of a nonlinear optical process in a two-dimensional silicon photonic-crystal waveguide. We observe visible third-harmonic-generation at a wavelength of 520nm with only a few watts of peak power, and demonstrate strong third-harmonic-generation enhancement due to the reduced group velocity of the near-infrared pump signal. This demonstrates yet another unexpected nonlinear function realized in a CMOS-compatible silicon waveguide.

Observation of laser-induced continuum structure (LICS) in sodium due to the coupling of a bound state to the continuum by a strong laser field has been reported elsewhere. Such experiments have mostly employed a single laser photon to probe the structured continuum from the ground state. Other experiments have used multiphoton (third harmonic) probe schemes, but only one of these has successfully observed LICS, in agreement with theoretical predictions. We report here a very similar experiment generating third-harmonic radiation in sodium to probe the anticipated LICS produced by coupling the 5s state to the p continuum. However, under no conditions was any continuum structure observed, in agreement with in a number of other experiments, but at variance with theoretical predictions.
