Paper Abstract

Focusing intense laser light along with some of its second harmonic into a glass sample transforms the glass into a frequency doubler. We present a new method to measure the optical phase shift between the second-harmonic beam used to seed the glass and the second- harmonic beam subsequently produced by the glass sample. Determination of this phase shift is essential for understanding the growth dynamics of the effect, and its value can discriminate between proposed theoretical models.
