Paper Abstract

The behavior of second-harmonic generation (SHG) is germanosilicate fibers in compared to recent results on similar effects in semiconductor microcrystallite glasses. The latter offer a much more readily characterizable system where many of the bulk semiconductor properties can be invoked to explain the results. The comparison suggests that extended state enhancement of nonlinear response and electric field dependent trapping in the germanosilicate glass system would unify the encoding process in both materials.
