Abstract

A systematic approach toward the discovering of novel functional noncentrosymmetric (NCS) materials revealing technologically useful applications is an ongoing challenge. This Frontiers article investigates a series of NCS solid solutions with respect to their crystal structure and second-harmonic generation (SHG) response. The solid solutions include NCS polar aluminoborates, Al5−xGaxBO9 (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5), rare earth element-doped bismuth tellurites, Bi2−xRExTeO5 (RE = Y, Ce, and Eu; 0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.2), layered perovskites, Bi4−xLaxTi3O12 (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.75: Aurivillius phases) and CsBi1−xEuxNb2O7 (0.0 ≤ x ≤ 0.2: Dion–Jacobson phases), calcium bismuth oxides, Ca4Bi6−xLnxO13 (Ln = La and Eu; x = 0, 0.06 and 0.12), and sodium lanthanide iodates, NaLa1−xLnx(IO3)4 (Ln = Sm and Eu; 0 ≤ x ≤ 1). The origin of SHG for all the NCS solid solutions is discussed and the detailed structure–nonlinear optical (NLO) property relationships are elucidated. In addition, photoluminescence (PL) properties and subsequent energy transfer mechanisms for NCS solid solutions are provided.
