The three independent second-order nonlinear optical coefficients of BaMgF 4 are determined by the Maker fringe method with a nanosecond pulsed Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm wavelength. All the results are relative to the reference crystal congruent LiNbO 3 . The largest element in a second-order nonlinear optical matrix of BaMgF 4 is d 32 , with the value of 0.36 pm∕V.
