Electrically tunable third-order nonlinear optical response in graphene

Electrically tunable third-order nonlinear optical response in graphene

The birth of nonlinear optics is credited to an experiment conducted in 1961 by Peter Franken and co-workers with a pulsed ruby laser, in which they observed the nonlinear effect of second-harmonic generation (SHG, frequency doubling) for the first time
