Abstract: We propose a convex optimization approach for an array synthesis pattern to enhance the electromagnetic field in the gap region of a dielectric bow-tie antenna. This method allows the induction of the desired antenna modes by exploiting the concurrent excitation of the structure with plane waves with different propagation directions and complex amplitudes. By engineering the excitation coefficients of the array, different modes are excited in the bow-tie antenna and the radiation pattern of the generated second harmonic (SH) field is modified accordingly. Using our approach, we demonstrate both the feasibility of performing synthesis of the SH radiation pattern in dielectric antennas and the possibility of developing innovative sensing applications in photonics
