Nonlinear Surface Polariton Interactions: Surface Enhanced Nonlinear Optical Effects

Part of the Springer Series on Wave Phenomena book series (SSWAV, volume 3)


Surface enhanced nonlinear optical (SENLO) phenomena have attracted a great deal of interest [1–27]. By SENLO effects, we mean nonlinear optical (NLO) effects whose efficiency is enhanced as compared to the case where the nonlinear (NL) interaction involves the NL medium alone. We shall be mainly concerned with surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) (including Raman excitation of surface polariton [6] (S Pol)), surface enhanced second harmonic generation (SESHG), surface enhanced Kerr effect (SEKE) which leads to a lowering of the threshold of bistable optical devices. As will be seen, all these “SE” phenomena have in common an enhancement which, at least partly, has a linear or NL electromagnetic (EM) component.
