Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Two new oxides, BaTeMo2O9 and BaTeW2O9, have been synthesized, by standard solid-state techniques, that have strong SHG intensities of ∼600 × SiO2, on the order of LiNbO3. Both materials contain cations susceptible to second-order Jahn−Teller (SOJT) distortions, resulting in asymmetric coordination environments. The SOJT distortion polarizes the M6+−O and Te4+−O bonds. Equally importantly, these polarizations constructively add, resulting in the large SHG responses. Powder SHG measurements on BaTeM2O9 (M = Mo6+ or W6+) indicated that both materials are phase-matchable and have a 〈deff〉exp of 28 and 22 pm/V, respectively. Using bond hyperpolarizability values (β's) of 130 × 10-40 and 305 × 10-40 m4/V for Te4+−O and Mo6+−O respectively, we calculate a 〈deff〉calc of 20pm/V for BaTeMo2O9. In addition, through the powder SHG measurements, we are able to give a more reasonable value for β(W6+−O), 230 × 10-40 m4/V. This value is consistent with the smaller polarizability and magnitude of the intra-octahedral distortion of W6+ compared with Mo6+.
