This thesis describes work done towards establishing efficient and reproducible second harmonic generation in thermally poled novel high-index bismuth-borate glass structures. According to the rectification model, glass with higher χ These achievements opened new investigations towards realizing efficient monolithic structures leading to high performance active devices based on poled bismuth-based glass waveguides. In particular, an all-glass electro-optic modulator and a frequency doubler have been targeted, based on sputtering and femtosecond laser direct writing, respectively.
