    Abstract. Simultaneous measurements of the second-harmonic generation (SHG) and of the two-photon photoelectric emission (2PPE) responses induced from an Au target by the same incident picosecond laser beam at lambda = 532 nm are performed. The effects of a dc electric field, applied between the...
