Spectral structure of various half harmonic (ω0/2, 3ω0/2 and 5ω0/2) emission from an inhomogeneous plasma is analyzed. Several interaction mechanisms are studied and the effects of plasmon refraction and reflection are included in the analysis. These modify earlier results of the homogeneous plasma model considerably and increase the number of possible coupling configurations. The predictions of results in the different lasertarget experiments are discussed.
