    Abstract

    High-harmonic generation in metasurfaces, driven by strong laser fields, has been widely studied. Compared to plasma, all-dielectric nanoscale metasurfaces possess a larger nonlinearity response and high damage threshold. Additionally, it can strongly localize the driven field, greatly enhancing its peak amplitude. In this work, we adopt a Fano-resonant micro-nano structure with transmission peaks at different wavelengths and explore its nonlinear response by both single and two-color pump fields. Compared to the high-order harmonics induced by the first resonant wavelength, the intensity of the high harmonic radiation results enhanced by one order of magnitude, when the metasurface is driven by various resonant and non-resonant wavelength combinations of a two-color field.
