In this work, we demonstrate the fabrication of differently oriented laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS) on hybrid metal-dielectric films. Dark-field and scanning electron microscopy images of obtained structures show a decrease in the size and period between them along the laser spot. The mapping of nonlinear optical properties of structures demonstrates two-order enhancement of SHG signal compared to the initial sample together with intense broadband photoluminescence signal. A comparison between maps and scanning electron microscopy images shows that the strongest nonlinear signal is detected in the region of the most densely located structures. We suppose that such type of structures can be used as a useful white light source for lab-on-chip devices.
