Paper Title:
Nonlinear Electrodynamic and Optical Properties of Graphene
  Abstract

Graphene is a recently discovered new material with unique physical properties. In this paper we discuss its electrodynamic and optical properties. It is shown that the electromagnetic response of graphene to the external radiation is strongly nonlinear and such phenomena as the frequency harmonics generation and frequency mixing effects can be observed in it. The nonlinear susceptibility of graphene is higher than that of many other materials.We predict that under certain conditions the plasmon enhanced second harmonic generation can be observed in graphene.
