    Self-sustained all-optical poling second-harmonic generation (SHG) experiments are conducted in single-core and multicore dye-doped poly(methyl methacrylate) optical fibers. By tuning the polarization of the fundamental beam, the SHG signal is degraded and is reconstructed spontaneously up to its initial level. We found a new situation in which the photo-induced self-organization of azo polymers creates a well-ordered periodic structure.
