Paper Abstract

By all-optical poling of a medium the long-lived space-periodic electrostatic field arises inside the sample and, as a result of such induction, an isotropic medium gains the properties of an inhomogeneous optical single-axis crystal. The space distribution and the maximum value of the resulting induced electrostatic field in the present of the current mechanism of all-optical poling are substantially depending on the geometry of poling process in medium during the interaction of intersecting laser beams. All-optical poling process is theoretically studied at different conditions of two-beam interaction in an conductive isotropic media and the spatial distributions of the resulting induced electric fields are analyzed. The efficiencies and the features of the typical geometrical schemes of all-optical poling are discussed.
