Paper Abstract

The linear and nonlinear optical properties of N-(4-nitro-2-pyridinyl)-phenylalaninol (NPPA) single crystals have been investigated. The refractive indices were measured in the visible and near infrared for wavelengths up to 1318 nm. The nonlinear optical coefficients were measured for the second harmonic generation of 1064 and 1318 nm light. The largest coefficient d23 was found to be 31 pm/V. The phase matching conditions for frequency doubling and sum frequency generation are discussed.
