Abstract : A process of fabricating a hybrid single crystal fiber having nonlinear optical properties such as frequency doubling. Said process includes placing a fiber core upon a bulk nonlinear crystal such as LiIO3 in a saturated growth solution of LiI03 in water. After the core in encased a sufficient distance crystal growth is stopped.
