Abstract

Second-order optical properties of thermally poled arsenic-germanium sulfide glasses have been investigated. Parallel studies of glass structure changes upon poling and/or visible cw-laser irradiation and complete SHG quantitative analysis have been performed. Key parameters and poling mechanisms influencing largely SHG stability and efficiency have been pointed out. (C) 2013 Optical Society of America
