Abstract

Self-sustained all-optical poling second-harmonic generation (SHG) experiments are conducted in single-core and multicore dye-doped poly(methyl methacrylate) optical fibers. By tuning the polarization of the fundamental beam, the SHG signal is degraded and is reconstructed spontaneously up to its initial level. We found a new situation in which the photo-induced self-organization of azo polymers creates a well-ordered periodic structure.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Comparison of SHG intensity growth during and after the seeding period for two different fiber cores, (a) 2.6 mm fiber length and (b) 5.3 mm fiber length. Insert in (a) is a microscope image of the multicore fiber with 0.19 mm diameter and 0.86 mm cladding. Dark areas are the DR1-PMMA cores with 2r=35±3μm and d=25±3μm. Insert in (b) shows the SHG growth in a 14 mm long multicore fiber. The arrows materialize the end of the seeding process. The growth process was fitted to an exponential law with τg=30 and 28 min for the 2.6 mm single-core and multicore fibers, respectively; τg=41 and 20 min for the 5.3 mm single-core and multicore fibers, respectively.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Evolution of the self-reconstructing SHG upon rotation of the reading beam polarization at 1300 nm. Initial polarization was set s (horizontal) during the seeding process, as indicated by a horizontal arrow. The seeding process was interrupted after 15 to 20 min, as pointed by the vertical arrows. Except for the last increment, rotation of the half-wave plate in front of the IR reading beam was carried by increments of 10° every 5 min, which corresponds to a 20° rotation of the polarization, until a rotation of exactly 45° (90° polarization p indicated by central vertical arrow). The system was then left stationary during 35 min, at which time the polarization was turned by 90°, back to s (horizontal arrow). The successive time periods are marked by the dashed horizontal arrows delimitating the polarization symbols. (a) 2.6 mm fiber length and (b) 5.3 mm fiber length. The same fibers as Fig. 1 were used.
