Second harmonic generation (SHG) has been obtained in a sample of Ga5Ge20Sb10S65 glass submitted to a thermal poling treatment. An original characterization method is used for the determination of the induced second-order nonlinear profile. A reproducible χ(2) susceptibility of 4.4±0.4 pm/Volt was achieved for specific poling conditions.
