    • Electrodynamics of conductive oxides: intensity-dependent anisotropy, reconstruction of the effective dielectric constant, and harmonic generation 

      Scalora, Michael; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Ceglia, Domenico de; Vincenti, M. A.; Akozbek, Neset; Coppens, Zachary; Rodríguez Suñé, Laura; Cojocaru, Crina (2020-05-13)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study electromagnetic pulse propagation in an indium tin oxide nanolayer in the linear and nonlinear regimes. We use the constitutive relations to reconstruct the effective dielectric constant of the medium, and show ...

      Currently, nanostructures are routinely fabricated and integrated in different photonic devices for a variety of purposes and applications. For instance, in order to engineer properly nano-antennas or filters, it is important ...
    • Harmonic generation from gold nanolayers: bound and hot electron contributions to nonlinear dispersion 

      Rodríguez Suñé, Laura; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina; Akozbek, Neset; Ceglia, Domenico de; Vincenti, M. A.; Scalora, Michael (2021-03-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Understanding how light interacts with matter at the nanoscale is pivotal if one is to properly engineer nano-antennas, filters and other devices whose geometrical features approach atomic size. We report experimental ...
    • Harmonic generation from metal-oxide and metal-metal boundaries 

      Escalora, M.; Vincenti, M. A.; de Ceglia, Domenico; Akozbek, Neset; Bloemer, M. J.; De Angelis, C.; Haus, J.W.; Vilaseca Alavedra, Ramon; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-08-20)
      Article
      Open Access
      We explore the outcomes of detailed microscopic models by calculating second- and third-harmonic generation from thin-film surfaces with discontinuous free-electron densities. These circumstances can occur in structures ...
    • Harmonic generation in metallic, GaAs-filled nanocavities in the enhanced transmission regime at visible and UV wavelengths 

      Vincenti, M. A.; de Ceglia, D.; Roppo, Vito; Scalora, M. (2011-01-19)
      Article
      Open Access
      We have conducted a theoretical study of harmonic generation from a silver grating having slits filled with GaAs. By working in the enhanced transmission regime, and by exploiting phase-locking between the pump and its ...

      Scalora, Michael; Vincenti, M. A.; Ceglia, Domenico de; Cojocaru, Crina; Grande, Manuel; Haus, J.W. (2015-10-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      We employ a classical, nonlinear Lorentz-Duffing oscillator model to predict third harmonic conversion efficiencies in the ultrafast regime, from a variety of metal nanostructures, including smooth, isolated metal layers, ...
