We experimentally achieved enhanced third harmonic generation (THG) from hole-array in gold film. The surface plasmon polarition excitations, considered as the major contribution to this THG enhancement, are elaborately studied by a spectrum-resolved femto-second laser system. The momentum matching conditions between the fundamental and harmonic waves are well established, giving results of a series of clear THG beam spots with respect to different excitation wavelengths. This efficient THG beaming from the pure metallic structure would considerably broaden the research in the field of nonlinear plasmonics.
