    • Abstract


      With the development of the state-of-the-art band calculation scheme and massively parallel processing in the high performance computing, we are now able to calculate all important physical properties, including

      1. the nonlinear susceptibility;

      2. the multiphoton absorption rate;

      3. the birefringence; and

      4. the energy gap,

      from the first principles for complex practical nonlinear optical crystals, such as the borate crystal series, with an accuracy acceptable for materials development/design, and answer the questions often raised by the material scientists.
