Abstract

This work proposes a new route to overcome the limits of the thermal poling technique for the creation of second order nonlinearity in conventional silica optical fibers. We prove that it is possible to enhance the nonlinear behavior of periodically poled fibers merging the effects of poling with the nonlinear intrinsic properties of some materials, such as MoS2, which are deposited inside the cladding holes of a twin-hole silica fiber. The optical waves involved in a second harmonic generation process partially overlap inside the thin film of the nonlinear material and exploit its higher third order susceptibility to produce an enhanced SHG.
