Thermally induced second-order nonlinearity in silica-based glasses
2005 (English)In: Applied Physics Letters, ISSN 0003-6951, E-ISSN 1077-3118, Vol. 87, no 17Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This letter presents the observation of second-harmonic generation in pure silica and germanium-doped glass samples after heat treatment at elevated temperatures followed by rapid quenching to room temperature. No applied voltage has been used and the samples do not contain crystals. The induced nonlinearity is located near the surfaces of the sample. The possible origin of the second-order nonlinearity is discussed.
