Abstract

The generation of 236 mW of second-harmonic power in a 32-cm-long periodically poled silica fiber, corresponding to an average conversion efficiency of 15.2 ± 0.5 % , is reported. This represents the highest normalized second-harmonic conversion and the highest average second-harmonic power ever reported for a periodically poled silica fiber, to our knowledge. The enhancement is attributed to an improved design of the specialty twin-hole fiber and the extension of the nonlinear interaction length.
