25_06i/2013Non-Linear Optics: Spontaneous Emission and Nonlinear Response Enhancement by Silver Nanoparticles in a Nd3+-Doped Periodically Poled LiNbO3 Laser Crystal (Adv. Mater. 6/2013)

Periodic distributions of silver nanoparticles are self-assembled on a Nd3+-doped periodicallypoled ferroelectric laser crystal. The plasmonic resonances supported by the metallic arrays produce an enhancement of the Nd3+ luminescence, and a remarkable intensification of the second harmonic generated signal. Further details can be found in the article by Pablo Molina and coworkers on page 910.
