Selective High-Harmonic Generation by Charge Transfer Plasmon-Resonant Nanodimers.

Nezih Pala, Arash Ahmadivand, Burak Gerislioglu

Here, we study the possibility of selective high-harmonic generation (HHG) based on the concept of charge transfer plasmons (CTP) in bridged nanoparticle assemblies. By choosing plasmonic dimer nanoantenna, as a fundamental member of nanoclusters family, and bridging the gap space between the proximal nanoparticles with an optothermally controllable substance, we selectively produced two different harmonics at different states of the functional bridge. To this end, the conductive connection between the nanoparticles is mediated with Ge2Sb2Te5 (GST), which inherently has opposite optical and electrical properties depending on its phase condition. This helped us to manipulate the transition of charges across the bridge and therefore, control the excitation of CTP resonances and provide a switching feature between distinguished plasmonic resonant modes. Such a control allows us to produce highly intense second and forth harmonics based on the conductivity of the interparticle junction.
