Abstract

A microscopic theory is presented to describe high-harmonic generation in solids with the semiconductor-Bloch equations. The approach includes the relevant interband polarizations and intraband currents. The appearance of even harmonic orders is shown to require at least three electronic bands and a mutual interband coupling between them. In experimental and theoretical time-resolved studies, this also manifests as a unipolar emission signature of the high-harmonic radiation.
