Abstract

We show that coherent broadband surface mixing-wave (SMW) by a hyper-Raman process can be efficiently generated near a metallic surface abutting a quasi-three-level gain medium. The generation process is significantly enhanced by the amplified surface plasmonic polaritons (SPPs) in the gain layer, resulting in rapid growth of both fields. The highly efficient and directional amplified SPP and hyper-Raman SMW may facilitate engineering applications in which amplified- SPP propagation is desirable.
