Ferroelectric domain inversion has been demonstrated in BaMgF4 . Transparency has been measured to <140nm, and no change in transmission was measured under 157-nm irradiation for >1.1×109 shots at 2mJ/cm2 per pulse. First-order quasi-phase-matched generation of 157 nm is predicted by use of grating periods as long as 1.5μm. This material should permit shorter-wavelength χ(2) frequency-mixing processes than with any other crystalline material.
