The majority of metamaterial ideas are expressed in terms of effective material parameters. However, in many cases that kind of description fails, for a number of reasons such as strong spatial

New degrees of freedom in nonlinear metamaterials

This is an overview of the recent achievements in exploiting novel degrees of freedom in metamaterial design, which enable sophisticated nonlinear coupling mechanisms and bring enhancement to

Comparison Between the Linear and Nonlinear Homogenization of Graphene and Silicon Metasurfaces

In this article, we use a versatile homogenization approach to model the linear and nonlinear optical response of two metasurfaces: a plasmonic metasurface consisting of graphene patches and a

Plasmon-induced nonlinearity enhancement and homogenization of graphene metasurfaces.

It is demonstrated that the effective 3rd-order nonlinear susceptibility of a graphene sheet can be enhanced by more than 2 orders of magnitude by patterning it into a graphene metasurface by introducing a versatile homogenization method.

In complex materials there exist different, often independent, mechanisms for the evolution of anelastic phenomena at the micro- and at the macroscale. Consequently, gradient plasticity has been

Effective Parameters for 1D Photonic Crystals with Isotropic and Anisotropic Magnetic Inclusions: Coherent Wave Homogenization Theory

A homogenization theory that can go beyond the regime of long wavelengths is proposed, namely, a theory that is still valid for vectors of waves near the edge of the first zone of Brillouin. In this

Guided TE-waves in a slab structure with lossless cubic nonlinear dielectric and magnetic material: parameter dependence and power flow with focus on metamaterials

AbstractThe parameter dependence and power flow of guided TE-waves in a lossless cubic nonlinear, dielectric, magnetic planar three-layer structure is studied as follows. Using a travelling wave

Retrieval of all effective susceptibilities in nonlinear metamaterials

Electromagnetic metamaterials offer a great avenue to engineer and amplify the nonlinear response of materials. Their electric, magnetic, and magneto-electric linear and nonlinear response are

Mimicking bio-mechanical principles in photonic metamaterials for giant broadband nonlinearity

Microscopic structuring can change the effective properties of a material by several orders of magnitude. An example of this is animal bone, which has an effective elastic modulus that is more than



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.
