Abstract

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(2) in silica and thereby provide experimental evidence that this χ(2) originates from a χ(3) process.
