Title: Multifunctional Bi{sub 2}ZnOB{sub 2}O{sub 6} single crystals for second and third order nonlinear optical applications

Bi{sub 2}ZnOB{sub 2}O{sub 6} nonlinear optical single crystals were grown by means of the Kyropoulos method from stoichiometric melt. The second and third harmonic generation (SHG/THG) of Bi{sub 2}ZnOB{sub 2}O{sub 6} crystals were investigated by the SHG/THG Maker fringes technique. Moreover, SHG microscopy studies were carried out providing two-dimensional SHG images as a function of the incident laser polarization. The high nonlinear optical efficiency combined with the possibility to grow high quality crystals make Bi{sub 2}ZnOB{sub 2}O{sub 6} an excellent candidate for photonic applications.
