Abstract

Resonant metasurfaces provide a unique platform for enhancing multiwave nonlinear interactions. However, the difficulties over mode matching and material transparency place significant challenges in the enhancement of these multiwave processes. Here we demonstrate efficient nonlinear sum-frequency generation (SFG) in multiresonant GaP metasurfaces based on guided-wave bound-state in the continuum resonances. The excitation of the metasurface by two near-infrared input beams generates strong SFG in the visible spectrum with a conversion efficiency of 2.5 × 10–4 W–1, 2 orders of magnitude higher than the one reported in Mie-type resonant metasurfaces. In addition, we demonstrate the nontrivial polarization dependence on the SFG process. In contrast to harmonic generation, the SFG process is enhanced when using nonparallel polarized input-beams. Importantly, by varying the input pump beam polarization it is possible to direct the SFG emission to different diffraction orders, thereby opening up new opportunities for nonlinear light sources and infrared to visible light conversion.
