Paper Abstract

2-(N-prolinol)-5-nitropyridine (PNP) is a nonlinear optical organic material. Its linear and nonlinear optical properties have been investigated. The refractive indices and the orientation of the index ellipsoid were measured in the spectral range from 488 to 1064 nm. At 632 nm the main refractive indices are nx = 1.990, ny = 1.788, nz = 1.467. The two major nonlinear optical susceptibilities were determined (dyxx = 48 pm/V, dyyy = 17 pm/V). Angle tuned phase-matched second-harmonic generation was demonstrated at 1064 nm. The influence of beam walk-oft for the efficiency of this process is discussed. Type I noncritical phase matching using the nonlinear optical susceptibility dyxx is predicted for a fundamental wavelength λ = 1020 nm.
