Scanning second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy is becoming an important tool for characterizing nanopatterned metal surfaces and mapping plasmonic local field enhancements. Here we study G-shaped and mirror-G-shaped gold nanostructures and test the robustness of the experimental results versus the direction of scanning, the numerical aperture of the objective, the magnification, and the size of the laser spot on the sample. We find that none of these parameters has a significant influence on the experimental results.
