Two figures of merit, the threshold power (Pth) and the limiting
volume (Vmin) can be used to compare the relative efficiency and
economy of new harmonic generating crystals. The properties of barium
metaborate and L-Arginine phosphate are used to illustrate the effect of
nonlinearity, birefringence. and damage threshold on these figures of
