Paper Abstract

The saturation of self-organized second-harmonic generation in optical fibers, predicted by a model we have recently derived, is verified by calculating the saturation value of the ratio I2(omega )/I(omega )2 using experimental data of some previous experiments. It was found that the value of (I2(omega )/I(omega )2)sat determined experimentally ranges from 0.3 multiplied by 10-16 m2/W to 2 multiplied by 10-16 m2/W, which is in reasonable agreement with the theoretical predictions. The self-organized parametric down conversion is proposed for a very effective preparation of optical fibers.
