Second-order nonlinear processes such as second-harmonic generation (SHG) require noncentrosymmetric structures. The development of second-order metamaterials, however, has been hampered by symmetry breaking due to sample defects and shape distortions. The resulting outcomes can be interpreted in terms of effective higher-multipole (magnetic and quadrupole) effects that strongly modify the radiative properties of the samples.
