Fano resonances manifest novel phenomena both in linear and nonlinear response of plasmonic nanomaterials. They can extend the lifetime of plasmonic excitations, enabling the operation of nanolasers, or they can increase the fluorescence of quantum emitters. They also provide control over nonlinear optical processes such as second harmonic generation and surface enhanced Raman scattering. Fano resonances can both enhance and suppress nonlinear response. Interference of two or more absorption/conversion paths is responsible for the appearance of these effects. In this Chapter, we demonstrate explicitly—on a single equation—how path interference takes part in linear and nonlinear Fano resonances.
