Dynamical centrosymmetry breaking and second-harmonic generation in graphene

David Carvalho, Fabio Biancalana

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A set of equations is proposed as a suitable model to understand nonlinear light-matter interactions in monolayer graphene with pulsed light. At normal incidence, these equations predict second-harmonic generation by encapsulating a novel mechanism of centrosymmetry breaking.
