Abstract

We have discovered a new nonlinear optical (NLO) alumino-borate BaAlBO<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>3</SUB></FONT>F<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>2</SUB></FONT> (BABF) crystal. BABF has a structure similar to that of KBe<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>2</SUB></FONT>BO<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>3</SUB></FONT>F<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>2</SUB></FONT> (KBBF) but can easily be grown as grow large crystals and does not contain toxic elements in its composition. In this paper, we will discuss about the BABF crystal growth and its crystal structure. We have also measured its preliminary optical characteristics. BABF crystal can be grown with dimensions of 15× 15× 3.5 tmm<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUP>3</SUP></FONT>. The UV absorption edge of BABF is very short (165 nm). BABF was found to have a powder second harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency about twice than that of KH<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>2</SUB></FONT>PO<FONT SIZE="-1"><SUB>4</SUB></FONT> (KDP). It exhibits that BABF is an excellent candidate for frequency mixing into the ultraviolet (UV).
