Abstract

We discuss the study of three chalcogenide glasses of high third-order nonlinear electric susceptibility, As Se 4 , Ge Se 4 , and GeAs Se 8 . We measured the strain optical coefficients, and we determined dispersion equations of the refractive index from previously published measurements. From these data, we performed a theoretical study of a new scheme for third-harmonic generation in a glass where phase matching is created by a photoelastic effect. A complete symmetry analysis based on Curie principle allowed us to define the configuration of polarization of the interacting waves, leading to a nonzero cubic effective coefficient. The generated third-harmonic intensity is then calculated.
