Paper Abstract

The study of self-diffraction in the Raman-Nath regime through three and four-wave mixing processes related to excitation of surface polaritons at the fundamental and second-harmonic frequencies by means of induced dynamic gratings was carried out. The effects of enhancement and bistability of second- harmonic generation were determined. All these phenomena are caused by the surface enhanced local field due to excitation of surface polaritons and can be used to increase sensitivity of nonlinear optical techniques for surface probing.
