Abstract

We show experimentally that in second-harmonic generation from a monolayer the radiation propagating in transmission and that in reflection can have very different magnitudes. The origin of this difference lies in destructive and constructive interference of the components of the nonlinear polarization that drive the field at the second-harmonic frequency.
