Abstract

Poled glass is an attractive material for nonlinear optics applications. In particular devices such as wavelength converters and switches can be straightforwardly integrated in the present optical telecommunications. Several glass systems have been tested so far in order to find one in which is possible to induce high second-order nonlinearities, but discrepancies in the values of χ(2) reported in point out that a reliable and practical technique is essential. Reliable χ(2) measurements requires accuracy in the measurement of the thickness of the induced nonlinearity (L ~ 10 µm).
