The paper reports on nonlinear optical properties (second-harmonic generation, SHG) of SrxBa1-xNb2O6 films grown by a low pressure metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) process and advanced strontium and barium metal organic precursors. Reported are liquid-phase epitaxy, rf sputtering, and sol-gel growth of textured SrxBa1-xNb2O6 thin films. The as-deposited SrxBa1-xNb2O6 films exhibit nonlinear optical responses comparable to bulk single crystal values.
