SiC nanoparticles by carbothermal reduction show promising properties in terms of second harmonic and multiphoton excited luminescence. In particular, we estimate a nonlinear efficiency < d < = 17 pm/V, as obtained by Hyper Rayleigh Scattering. We also present results of cell labelling to demonstrate the potential use of SiC nanoparticles for nonlinear bioimaging by simultaneous detection of second harmonic and luminescence.
