Abstract

Nonlinear optical borate crystals of Gd 1 x Sc x Ca 4 O ( B O 3 ) 3 and Gd 1 x Lu x Ca 4 O ( B O 3 ) 3 have been grown and characterized. By changing the composition of these crystals, their optical birefringence can be controlled to obtain second-harmonic generations (SHG) in the ranges of 790 824 nm along the Y axis and 920 963 nm along the Z axis through noncritical phase matching (NCPM). The refractive indices of grown crystals were measured with a minimum-deviation technique. The experimental results of NCPM conditions for SHG are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
