The linear and second-order nonlinear optical properties of single-crystal zinc tris(thiourea) sulfate, or ZTS, are determined. The deduced nonlinear coefficients are |d(31)| = 0.31, |d(32)| = 0.35, and |d(33)| = 0.23 pm/V compared with a |d(14)| value of 0.39 pm/V for potassium dihydrogen phosphate. Because it exhibits a low angular sensitivity(More)
