Plasmas were produced by tightly focusing femtosecond laser pulses onto the surface of metal films and glass targets. A relatively intense, well-collimated second harmonic could be observed in the specular direction. The conversion efficiency reached 10-4 for focused intensities around 1016 W/cm2. Detailed measurements of the angular dependence, the polarization properties, and the second-harmonic frequency spectra were performed. Time-resolved pump-probe experiments revealed interesting information about the dynamics of the plasmas. It is suggested that resonant absorption plays an important role in second-harmonic generation
