Abstract

A light beam and its second harmonic can create a semipermanent dc electric field inside glass. This dc electric field is responsible for the unexpected production of second-harmonic light in the glass. We determine the transverse spatial shape of this photoinduced dc field inside a bulk sample of germanium-doped fused-silica glass.
