Paper Abstract

A study of the diffraction of a light wave at a periodic vacuum-metal interface is presented here for waves that carry enough energy to excite a nonlinear response in the metal. We analyze the generation and diffraction of the second-harmonic of the pump frequency. An approximate boundary condition of the 'surface impedance' type that simplifies diffraction problem is introduced. The results are shown to be in good agreement with the ones obtained by using the boundary conditions derived from the hydrodynamic model.
