Abstract

We demonstrate fourth-harmonic generation from a GaAs(001) surface by using femtosecond pulses well below damage threshold. Our data reveal a strong fourfold anisotropic surface-specific polarization that is not present in second-harmonic generation and is nearly as strong as the bulk polarization.
