Paper Abstract

Water soluble organic salts comprise a large class of crystalline materials containing many efficient harmonic generators for producing blue and near ultraviolet light. Among the salts of simple chiral organic acids and bases, about 1 in 10 crystals has a nonlinearity greater than or equal to KDP. The distribution of noncritical wavelengths among these crystals peaks around 500 nm for Type I doubling and 700 nm for Type II. We estimate the number of chiral organic salts which must be examined in a survey in order to assure with high probability that an "optimized" crystal for a given frequency conversion process will be found.
