Effective quadratic nonlinearities are high as 0.2 pm/V are reported for the first time to our knowledge in poled germanosilicate fibers. This value is ~200 time higher than previously achieved in these fibres. The presence of Ge is found to enhance the efficacy of both thermal (in combination with OH doping) and electron-beam poling in silica.
