The concept of utilizing second order nonlinear optical processes to mimic third order nonlinearities, in particular the optical Kerr effect, is discussed. Nonlinear organic materials with their large second order nonlinearities offer definite advantages for the implementation of such concepts. As a demonstration, we present both experimental and numerical results in the two important telecommunication windows on a DAN single crystal core fiber originally designed for efficient second harmonic emission in the Cerenkov geometry at 820 nm.
