We have studied the nonlinear optical properties of single gold nanoantennae driven with few-cycle laser pulses in the near infrared [1]. Intense third harmonic emission is obtained when exciting with fundamental spectra below 1.1 eV. At higher photon energies frequency doubling and two-photon induced luminescence are observed. We relate these findings to the band structure of bulk gold, especially a two-photon resonance with the d-band transitions.

The intense third-harmonic emission enables precise detection of frequency-resolved interferometric autocorrelation traces of individual nanoantennae. We find an enhancement up to 3 orders of magnitude when driving on resonance with the fundamental plasmon mode. A sub-cycle dephasing time as short as 2 fs is measured directly in the time domain, highlighting the strong radiation coupling and ultrabroadband response of these efficient nanodevices.
