Electron implantation : a new poling technique for creation and modification of second order susceptibility in glasses

P.St.J.Russell, P.G.Kazansky and A.Kamal


Recent work on glass poling and de-poling using electron implantation is reviewed, including preliminary results on the level of second order nonlinearity induced in glasses of different composition, experiments to clarify the form of the induced second order tensor in thermally-poled silica, and proposals on the underlying mechanisms both of electron implantation and thermal poling.
