Dynamics of short pulses and phase matched second harmonic generation in negative index materials

Scalora, Michael; D'Aguanno, Giuseppe; Bloemer, Mark; Centini, Marco; de Ceglia, Domenico; Mattiucci, Nadia; Kivshar, Yuri


We study pulsed second harmonic generation in metamaterials under conditions of significant absorption. Tuning the pump in the negative index range, a second harmonic signal is generated in the positive index region, such that the respective indices of refraction have the same magnitudes but opposite signs. This insures that a forward-propagating pump is exactly phase matched to the backward-propagating second harmonic signal. Using peak intensities of ~500 MW/cm2, assuming χ(2)~80pm/V,...[Show more]
