Glass materials used in optical fibres and planar waveguides do not exhibit a second order nonlinearity. However, through poling it is possible to process fibres and waveguides which can then be exploited in applications such as electrooptical switching and frequency conversion. The European Commission supports a joint effort (the GLAMOROUS project) to demonstrate that poling glass systems can be used in creating new useful devices. A workshop describing advances of the project, ranging from fundamental issues of glass properties and the physics of poling all the way to the construction of real components and their characterisation will take place in connection with POWAG on Sunday, July 11 th. The participants of the POWAG meeting are welcome to attend the workshop, that is free of charge.
