Abstract

An experimental analysis of the distribution and thickness of the bulk nonlinearity induced in poled silica is reported. The second-order susceptibility decreases exponentially from the anodic interface. Maker fringe patterns showing a double structure are interpreted in relation to the presence of two nonlinear profiles, one concentrated near the anodic surface and another extending into the bulk of the sample. The Maker fringe theory is properly generalized and a double fitting technique reproducing well the experimental results is used to characterize the induced nonlinearities. The dependence of the second-harmonic signal on the poling temperature is given, which is different from that of sol-gel silica. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
