    • Abstract

       

      Second harmonic generation and temperature autostabilized nonlinear dielectric element (TANDEL) effect have been studied for ferroelectric solid solutions (NaxK1−x)VO3 and (NaxLi1−x)VO3 in the vicinity of the Curie temperature. The generated second harmonic is linear for low biasing d.c. fields with zero off-set. The deviations from linear behaviour and a sharp decrease in the amplitude of second harmonic is observed at higher d.c. bias voltages. The TANDEL elements, in the autostabilized state, adjust their impedance against the variation of applied a.c. voltage. The observed zero off-set might be due to the presence of defects which give internal bias and generate second harmonic.
