N2 - We use two-beam second-harmonic generation to separate the surface (electric dipole origin) and bulk (magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole origin) contributions to the second-order nonlinear optical response of an isotropic gold film. The bulk response is unambiguously observed and explained by momentum damping of electrons in a free-electron model. Although bulk effects could be enhanced by inhomogeneous local fields in metal nanostructures and have been used to model second-harmonic generation from metamaterials [Y. Zeng et al., Phys. Rev.
