The linear and nonlinear optical properties of 2-(α-methylbenzylamino)-5-nitropyridine (MBANP) have been investigated. The hyperpolarizability of MBANP molecule is as large as those of other para-nitroaniline-like molecules while the charge-transfer absorption band is appreciably shifted to shorter wavelengths. MBANP crystal has an absorption cut-off around 0.45μm. The nonlinear optical coefficient d22 of MBANP is 126 times larger than d11 of quartz and is 1.46 times larger than d33 of LiNb03.
