Abstract

We discuss key features of the conversion of spin and orbital angular momentum of electromagnetic waves in the process of second-harmonic generation from the surface of the isotropic medium at oblique incidence. Conservation of the projections of spin and orbital parts of angular momentum of interacting waves onto the normal to the surface is shown for an arbitrary case of polarization and mode structure of the incident light beam.
