A simple method is described for producing silver and gold nanoparticles at the tip of an atomic force microscope sensor. It is shown that these nanoparticles can enhance the nonlinear optical phenomenon of second-harmonic generation of a molecular system such as a styryl dye. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
