Abstract

We study saturation of photoinduced second-harmonic generation in a Ge-doped silica fiber by modulating the relative phase between the fundamental and second-harmonic writing beams. We shift the phase by π and present measurements that identify saturation that is due to site depletion and saturation that is due to a backfield.
