Abstract

The all-optical poling technique permits polar orientation of molecules. For efficient poling of thin films the relative phases, amplitudes, and polarizations of the two interfering beams must be controlled. We present an original stable one-arm interferometer that is specific to the recording of two-color interference. It relies on the index dispersion of optical glasses. This interference technique permits true real-time nonperturbative monitoring of the polar orientation process and easy all-optical poling of thin-film materials without the need for phase control. This new configuration opens the door to the realization of customized phase-matched wave-guided frequency-conversion devices for the near infrared.
