Abstract : CW spontaneous parametric scattering in LiIO3 has been observed. The results show that the nonlinear coefficient chi(31) for LiIO3 is about 18 x 10 to the minus 9th power esu, in agreement with the second harmonic generation results of Nash et al but three times smaller than that given by Nath and Haussuhl. The ordinary index of refraction curve for this crystal has also been determined from 1.2 micrometer past the ir-absorption edge at 5.4 micrometers to near 7 micrometers; no resonance in the nonlinear susceptibility was found near this particular absorption band.
