Abstract

The second-order susceptibility d 36 of ammonium dihydrogen phosphate (ADP) was determined from phase-matched second-harmonic generation (SHG) at two wavelengths. A cw single-mode He–Ne laser (λ = 633 nm) and a cw single-mode Nd:YAG laser (λ = 1064 nm) were used as fundamental beam sources. The results were d 36(ADP, 633 nm) = (1.31 ± 0.05) × 10−9 esu = 0.55 ± 0.02 pm/V and d 36(ADP, 1064 nm) = (1.10 ± 0.06) × 10−9 esu = 0.46 ± 0.03 pm/V. The d 11 values of α-quartz were determined relative to d 36(ADP) to be d 11(α-quartz, 633 nm) = (7.4 ± 0.3) × 10−10 esu = 0.31 ± 0.01 pm/V and d 11(α-quartz, 1064 nm) = (7.1 ± 0.3) × 10−10 esu = 0.30 ± 0.01 pm/V by the use of the Maker fringe method. The Miller’s delta of ADP and α-quartz is in good agreement at the two wavelengths.
