The dynamics of the second-order nonlinearity induced in a thermally poled Infrasil silica glass is experimentally and theoretically studied. 200 mum and 500 mum-thick samples have been poled for different durations varying from 1 minute to 100 minutes. After the poling process, the magnitude and the spatial distribution of the induced chi((2)) susceptibility have been characterized accurately with the "layer peeling" method. A two-charge carrier model with an electric field dependant charge… CONTINUE READING
