We measure the values of individual χ ( 2 ) tensor components in a birefringent periodically poled silica fiber through spectrally separated type I and type II second-harmonic generation. We demonstrate that the χ ( 2 ) tensor symmetry is consistent with that of χ ( 3 ) in silica and thereby provide experimental evidence that this χ ( 2 ) originates from a χ ( 3 ) process.
