. The necessary high SHG efficiency is obtained by nanoparticles produced by an electron beam lithographic method, which enables us to fabricate a two-dimensional array of nearly identical, parallel oriented particles of designed shape without centrosymmetry, essential for high SHG efficiency and the tuning of the plasmon resonance to the driving laser wavelength of 780 nm.
