Abstract
Low absorption coefficients for the Light polarized along the crystall ographic a, b and c axes and an additional direction bisecting the an gle between the a and c axes of (-)2-alpha-(methylbenzylamino)-5-nitro pyridine (MBANP) single crystals were measured at the wavelengths 1064 nm and 532 nm. They were found to be in the range from 0.022 cm(-1) 0 .061 cm(-1) i.e., of the same order of magnitude as some widely used c rystals in the nonlinear optics. From these data all four absorption i ndex coefficients of this crystal were determined.
