Second-harmonic generation in nonlinear left-handed metamaterials

Shadrivov, Ilya V.; Zharov, Alexander A.; Kivshar, Yuri S.


We study the second-harmonic generation in left-handed metamaterials with a quadratic nonlinear response. We demonstrate a novel type of the exact phase matching between the backward propagating wave of the fundamental frequency and the forward propagating wave of the second harmonics. We show that this novel parametric process can convert a surface of the left-handed metamaterial into an effective mirror totally reflecting the second harmonics generated by an incident wave. We derive and...[Show more]
