Abstract

An erratum is presented to clarify both the direction of light polarization in our experiments and the unit cell geometry of the samples. Additionally, the spectral dependence of the second harmonic generation response in the G-shaped nanostructures made of gold is corrected. These changes do not affect our previous conclusions.

Fig. 3 In (a), (b), (c) and (d), schematic diagram of the sample geometry of the mirror-G shaped sample structures rotated in steps of 90°. In (e), (f), (g) and (h), the corresponding SHG microscopy images. The color coded intensities increase from purple, through green, then yellow to red. The red squares emphasize the pattern reproducing the mirror-G unit cell in Fig. 1. The white arrows indicate the direction of the linear polarization, which is identical for all images shown.
, the geometry of the sample arrays should be replaced as follows:
