Nonetheless, it is essential to develop the ability to dynamically control and manipulate the nonlinear properties, preferably at high speed. Plasmonic hot carriers can be resonantly excited in metal nanoparticles and then injected into semiconductors within 10–100 fs, where they eventually decay on a comparable time scale. This allows one to rapidly manipulate all kinds of characteristics of semiconductors, including their nonlinear properties. Here we demonstrate that plasmonically generated hot electrons can be injected from plasmonic nanostructure into bilayer (2L) tungsten diselenide (WSe2), breaking the material inversion symmetry and thus inducing an SHG. With a set of pump–probe experiments we confirm that it is the dynamic separation electric field resulting from the hot carrier injection (rather than a simple optical field enhancement) that is the cause of SHG. Transient absorption measurement further substantiate the plasmonic hot electrons injection and allow us to measure a rise time of ∼120 fs and a fall time of 1.9 ps. Our study creates opportunity for the ultrafast all-optical control of SHG in an all-optical manner that may enable a variety of applications.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/140389||ISSN:||1530-6984||DOI:||10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b04707||Rights:||This document is the Accepted Manuscript version of a Published Work that appeared in final form in Nano Letters, copyright © American Chemical Society after peer review and technical editing by the publisher.
