Paper Abstract

The first investigation on the nonlinear optical properties of Magnesium sulfite hexahydrate monocrystals are reported. The crystal has been grown, for the first time according to our knowledge, by our new original method, that allows them to reach up to 40-50 mm linear size. Both Type I and Type II phase matched effective second harmonic generations are observed when the crystal is pumped with Nd:YAG laser radiation. First data for MgSO36H2O indici of refraction dispersion and for its second order susceptibility tensor components are presented.
