Water Optical Nonlinearity: Explaining Anomalously Large Electro-Optic Coefficients in Poled Silica Fibres.
An explanation is offered for the large anomalous electro-optic (e.o.) effect reported by Fujiwara in 1994. It is based on the large e.o. coefficient of ordered water at an interface measured in recent years. The concept of water-based photonics is introduced, suggesting that liquid states of matter can allow ready shaping and exploitation of many processes in ways not previously considered.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
