We demonstrate second-harmonic generation due to counterpropagating beams in planar waveguides of 2-docosylamino-5-nitropyridine (DCANP). The DCANP molecules were deposited by Langmuir-Blodgett techniques and have a preferred alignment within the substrate plane. Four-layer waveguide structures were used to optimize the trade-off between propagation loss and efficient surface-emitted green light.
