The high-harmonic generation from a structured quantum ring (SQR) driven by an intense laser field is presented within the single active electron approximation. The spectrum is studied by varying the symmetry of the physical system. The standard SQR (six identical and equidistant dots in a ring) presents a 60° rotational symmetry, that in this work is broken, moving or changing only one potential hole. We find that careful designed breaking of the geometrical symmetry of the SQR opens the possibility of controlling the characteristics of the harmonic lines such as intensity and polarization. HHG analysis of the emission spectrum performed through a Morlet wavelet, shows that the high-frequency emission occurs during short time intervals.
