To design new second order nonlinear crystals, we have haracterized a series of dipeptide complexes and copper glutamate. We tested 16 materials using powder second harmonic generation. The best of these materials was copper glutamate. Results of initial nonlinear optical characterization of the copper glutamate powder determined by the Kurtz powder test are presented.
