The three independent second-order nonlinear optical coefficients of BaMgF4 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 LiNbO3. The largest element in a second-order nonlinear optical matrix of BaMgF4 is d32, with the value of 0.36  pm/V.
