Abstract
Silica fiber poling technology is used to induce a second-order nonlinearit y or linens electro-optic coefficient into silica fiber, an amorphous centr osymmetric material without intrinsic second-order nonlinearity. This paper reports on three poling techniques used for silica fiber thermal poling, C O2 laser-assisted poling, and ultraviolet (UV) poling. The characteristics, mechanisms, and latest research results for each poling technique are addr essed.
