Abstract
Glasses containing hyperpolarizable entities have a potential and scientifical interest for their nonlinear optical properties. Within this scope glasses of the Na2O-TiO2-P2O5 system have been investigated with a high sensitivity absolute interferometric technique. The values of the third order nonlinear susceptibilities will be discussed from the structural point of view and by extension to glasses of the bond orbital theory of Lines [3].
