Abstract

The presence of defect states in the band gap is an essential ingredient of recent models of photoinduced second-harmonic generation (SHG) in fibers. We have created such states by doping aluminosilicate glass fibers that do not contain Ge with Ce or Eu and observed SHG from 1.06-μm light after preparation of the fibers with 0.532- and 1.06-μm light. In an aluminosilicate fiber doped with 0.008 wt. % Ce, the SHG conversion efficiency is as high as 1.5% at infrared (1.06-μm) peak powers of 200 W.
