Abstract

The nonlinear optical technique of second harmonic generation (SHG) is introduced as a novel technique for monitoring particle formation in batch crystallizations. SHG is more sensitive and is less prone to interference than turbidometric methods. The studies presented show the applicability of SHG as a method for in situ measuring the induction time of a number of noncentrosymmetric crystal systems.
