A recurring theme in optics and photonics is the ability of metal nanostructures to imbue man – made material (so – called metamaterial) with new functions possibly not found in nature.

Metallic nanoantennas are one of the building blocks of such metamaterials that boast unusual linear and nonlinear characteristics. In this talk, I will describe my recent research on engineering the radiation pattern and polarisation of gold nanoantennas so as to optimise various nonlinear frequency mixing processes including Second Harmonic Generation.
