Paper Abstract

The crystallization features of thin single crystalline films of mNA and COANP compounds grown between two fused quartz plates, one of which has a recess in the middle, are described. The depth of the recessed spot was of the grown crystal thickness which range d form 1 to 10 micrometers. A possible explanation of the crystallization peculiarities of the COANP compound is given .The crystallographic and optical indicatrix orientations of the crystal s are discussed, and applied to measurement of the efficiency of the second harmonic of the Nd:YAG laser operating at 1.064 micrometers, and generated by our films. The pattern of the intensities of the second harmonic generation is discussed, and a possible explanation of the discrepancy between the experimental and theoretical data is given.
