AB - We present an all-dielectric germanium nanosystem exhibiting a strong third ordernonlinear response and efficient third harmonic generation in the optical regime. A thin germaniumnanodisk shows a pronounced valley in its scattering cross section close to the dark anapole mode,while the electric field energy inside the disk is maximized due to high confinement within thedielectric. We investigate the dependence of the third harmonic signal on disk size and pumpwavelength to reveal the nature of the anapole mode. Each germanium nanodisk generates a higheffective third order susceptibility of (3) = 4.3 10−9 , corresponding to an associated thirdharmonic conversion efficiency of 0.0001% at a wavelength of 1650 nm, which is four orders ofmagnitude greater than the case of an unstructured germanium reference film. Furthermore, thenonlinear conversion via the anapole mode outperforms that via the radiative dipolar resonancesby about one order of magnitude, which is consistent with our numerical simulations. Thesefindings open new possibilities for the optimization of upconversion processes on the nanoscalethrough the appropriate engineering of suitable dielectric materials.
