Second-harmonic generation using modal dispersion phase matching has been demonstrated in reactive-ion etched waveguides based on the organic nonlinear polymer poly (methyl methacrylate)-Disperse Red 1 [N' ethyl N-ethanol-4-(nitrophenylazo)phenylamino]. The measured propagation losses were 6 dB/cm at the fundamental and 10 dB/cm at the second-harmonic wavelength, dramatically less than we obtained previously for the harmonic in photobleached waveguides. A figure of merit of eta=0.1%/W for second-harmonic generation was obtained with a modest nonlinearity of 3 pm/V at 1607 nm in a 2 mm long waveguide.
