Paper Abstract

A brief review of up to date progress of the research on photoinduced self-organized second-harmonic generation (SHG) in optical fibers and doped bulk glass is presented. The writing and reading of self-shaped (chi) (2) grating at the interaction of short optical pulses including Kerr nonlinearities are described and the effective interaction length is calculated with data of published experiments. The effect of saturation of self-organized SHG proposed by the directional photoionization model and the cumulative local- response model is discussed. A new phenomenological model of the beginning of photoinduced self-organized SHG with complex third-order-rectification response function is proposed explaining the mutual shifting of the SH seeding and the SH radiation generated. The self-organized parametric down conversion (PDC) is proposed for a very effective preparation of optical fibers or bulk glass samples.
