Second-harmonic Generation in Left-handed Metamaterials

Shadrivov, Ilya; Gorkunov, Maxim; Zharov, N Alexander; Kivshar, Yuri


We study the second-harmonic generation in left-handed metamaterials with a quadratic nonlinear response and demonstrate a novel type of the phase matching between backwardpropagating waves of the fundamental frequency and forward-propagating waves of the second harmonics. We show that under these conditions a surface of the left-handed metamaterial is transformed into an effective mirror totally reflecting the second harmonics generated by an incident wave. We derive and analyze the...[Show more]
