Type I phase matched second harmonic generation (SHG) in the organic crystal ortho-Dicyanovinyl-anisole (DIVA) has been measured for a range of near infrared fundamental wavelengths (855–960 nm). Turning curves for type I phase matched SHG were derived from measured refractive index values and show noncritical phase matching at 860. Measured type I phase matched SHG is in close agreement with the calculated results and gives effective SHG coefficients ranging from 1.9 to 5.9 times as large as d32 of potassium niobate.
