Abstract

We propose a numerical method, based on surface integral equations (SIE), for evaluating the second harmonic (SH) scattering by metal nanoparticles (NPs) of arbitrary shape, considering both nonlocal-bulk and local-surface SH sources, induced by the electromagnetic field at the fundamental frequency. We demonstrate that the contribution of the nonlocal-bulk sources can be taken into account through equivalent surface electric and magnetic currents. We numerically solve the SIE problem by using the Galerkin method and the Rao–Wilton–Glisson basis functions in the framework of the distribution theory. The accuracy of the proposed method is verified by comparing with the SH-Mie analytical solution. As an example of a complex-shaped particle, we investigate the SH scattering by a triangular nanoprism. This method paves the way for a better understanding of the SH generation process in arbitrarily shaped NPs and can also have a high impact on the design of novel nanoplasmonic devices with enhanced SH emission.
