about this item

The nonlinear optical phenomena at interfaces and in thin-film structures of the micrometer and nanometer range containing several interphase boundaries greatly differ from the processes occurring in the bulk of the contacting media, say Aktsipetrov, Baranova, and Evtuykhov, and are therefore interesting from the point of view of fundamental science, in particular the rapidly developing field of surface physics. Moreover, the semiconductor thin-film structure and the interphase boundary, mainly those based on silicon, play a huge role in modern microelectronics, so the possibility of using non-linear optical methods for research is of great practical importance. They discuss some physical properties of silicon, basic theoretical concepts of generating a reflected second harmonic, phenomenological theory of generating a second harmonic reflected from a silicon surface, experimental results of studying reflected harmonics in silicon, generating second harmonics in silicon nanostructures, and photo-induced electronic processes in silicon and their impact on the generation of reflected second harmonics.
