Second-order nonlinear optical properties of Mg-doped lithium niobate single crystals are quantitatively studied from the chemical bond viewpoint. The results show that the secondorder nonlinear optical response of Mg-doped LiNbO 3 single crystals at 1079 nm decreases linearly with increasing Mg concentration in the crystal. This linear correlation is quantitatively evaluated in the current work.
