Paper Abstract

The objective of this report is aimed on both theoretical and experimental study of second harmonic generation at light reflection by a metal surface. The theory includes the effect of spatial dispersion, and the experiment exploits Nd:YAG laser to probe silver, gold, and copper sample. The comparative analysis shows nice agreement between the experimental data and results given by the theory developed here.
