Abstract

We investigated the nonlinear optical properties of new BaAlBO3F2(BABF) crystal. The high quality BABF is nonhygroscopic and possesses a moderate birefringence suitable for UV light generation. On the basis of its refractive index dispersion curves, it is inferred that BABF has great potential applications nonlinear optical material, notably for UV light generation at 355nm. In order to characterize its nonlinear optical properties, BABF samples were cut an oriented in phase matching conditions The optical conversion efficiency from 1064nm to 532nm was investigated for the first time: up to 49.0% were achieved. The external angular acceptance bandwidth of SHG and THG for 1064nm pump light was measured.
