ABSTRACT
Investigates the second harmonic generation (SHG) from Si[sub m]Ge[sub n] strained layer superlattices (SLS). Details on the SHG signals of odd-odd, even-even and even-odd specimens for a 775 nanometer fundamental beam; Lack of a large bulk dipole-allowed signal in odd-odd SLS; Advantage of SLS grown on vicinal silicon (001) substrates with biatomic steps.
