Abstract

We report the first observation of a magnetic dipolar contribution to the nonlinear optical (NLO) response of colloidal metal nanostructures. Second-order NLO responses from several individual solid gold nanosphere (SGN) dimers, which we prepared by a bottom-up approach, were examined using polarization-resolved second harmonic generation (SHG) spectroscopy at the single-particle level. Unambiguous circular dichroism in the SH signal was observed for most of the dimeric colloids, indicating that the plasmon field located within the interparticle gap was chiral. Detailed analysis of the polarization line shapes of the SH intensities obtained by continuous polarization variation suggested that the effect resulted from strong magnetic-dipole contributions to the nanostructure's optical properties.
