We show here that quasi-phase matched (QPM) planar nonlinear devices of high quality can be fabricated by means of periodic poling of the glass. The devices, used for second-harmonic generation (SHG), have accurately-controlled centre wavelengths, and the normalised conversion efficiencies are approximately one order of magnitude higher than what has previously been reported for periodically poled glass. In conclusion, we have demonstrated that high-quality nonlinear QPM devices can be fabricated in glass-on-silicon. The technology is easily adaptable to any desired wavelength (e.g. 1550 nm) and can be used not only for SHG, but for wavelength conversion processes in general.
