Second harmonic generation and the Bragg reflection gratings building up have attracted interest as novel nonlinear optical properties of SiO2:GeO2 fibers. The presence of optical absorption band centered at 5 eV is indispensable for emergence of these functions. In this article, we review a series of our recent works on optical properties of the 5 eV band and structural models for the responsible defects. A way to enhance concentrations of the defect is also shown.
