    We describe a unique class of metamaterials that exhibit strong uniaxial anisotropy with epsilon-zero response along the optical axis and which optical properties depend strongly on polarization. In an example of array of silver nanowires grown in anodic alumina membrane, the proposed singular...

    The effect of second harmonic generation was experimentally investigated in ZnSe nanowires grown by the vapor-liquid-solid method. The effect dramatically depended on the angle between the nanowire axis and the linear polarization of the excitation light. The magnitude of the effect was 20 times...

    We report on the magneto-optical properties of hexagonally arranged Ni nanowires embedded in anodic alumina templates. Due to the nanowire geometry, these samples show different response depending on the polarization orientation of the incident light, which leads to a high anisotropy of both...

    We have measured the optical second-harmonic (SH) intensity spectra from an array of Au nanowires of average width 60 nm on a faceted NaCl(110) template. For the s-polarized input and p-polarized output polarization combination, the SH intensity with the incident field parallel to the nanowire...
