Non-Uniqueness of Non-Linear Optical Response

  title={Non-Uniqueness of Non-Linear Optical Response},
  author={Gerard McCaul and Alexander F. King and Denys I. Bondar},
In recent years, non-linear optical phenomena have attracted much attention, with a particular focus on the engineering and exploitation of non-linear responses. Comparatively little study has however been devoted to the driving fields that generate these responses. In this work, we demonstrate that the relationship between a driving field and the optical response it induces is not-unique. Using a generic model for a strongly interacting system, we show that multiple candidate driving field…

How to Make Distinct Dynamical Systems Appear Spectrally Identical.
It is shown that a laser pulse can always be found that induces a desired optical response from an arbitrary dynamical system, and the formulation may be applied to design materials with specified optical characteristics.
Driven Imposters: Controlling Expectations in Many-Body Systems.
The laser fields required to exactly control the current in a Fermi-Hubbard system under a range of model parameters are determined, fully controlling the nonlinear high-harmonic generation and optically observed electron dynamics in the system.
Controlling arbitrary observables in correlated many-body systems
Here we present an expanded analysis of a model for the manipulation and control of observables in a strongly correlated, many-body system, which was first presented in [McCaul et al., eprint:
High-harmonic spectroscopy of ultrafast many-body dynamics in strongly correlated systems
We bring together two topics that, until now, have been the focus of intense but non-overlapping research efforts. The first concerns high-harmonic generation in solids, which occurs when an intense
Nonlinear optics.
In this method, non-linear susceptibility tensors are introduced which relate the induced dipole moment to a power series expansion in field strengths and the various experimental observations are described and interpreted in terms of this formalism.
Nonlinear metasurfaces: a paradigm shift in nonlinear optics
Frequency conversion processes, such as second- and third-harmonic generation, are commonly realized in nonlinear optics, offering opportunities for applications in photonics, chemistry, material
High-harmonic generation from an epsilon-near-zero material
High-harmonic generation (HHG) is a signature optical phenomenon of strongly driven, nonlinear optical systems. Specifically, the understanding of the HHG process in rare gases has played a key role
Observable-preserving control of quantum dynamics over a family of related systems
Quantum control aims at the manipulation of atomic- and molecular-scale dynamics phenomena. An important objective in this regard is the understanding of dynamical control within a family of related
Generation and propagation of high-order harmonics in crystals
The observation of nonperturbative high-order-harmonic generation in periodic solids has been interpreted in terms of a two step process comprising tunnel ionization and radiation from electrons
Nonlinear optics in all-dielectric nanoantennas and metasurfaces: a review
Abstract. Free from phase-matching constraints, plasmonic metasurfaces have contributed significantly to the control of optical nonlinearity and enhancement of nonlinear generation efficiency by
