Abstract:

Fabrication of polymer channel waveguides by etching on glass is reported. Results on second harmonic generation SHG in the Cerenkov mode from stable poled polymeric channel waveguides are presented. The waveguide conversion efficiency for doubling of NdYAG laser beam was estimated to be 0. 1 W with a total efficiency of 4.9 x 10-7 W.... Second harmonic generation, Polymer channel waveguides
