A transparent glass-ceramic containing borate crystallites in tellurite glass is reported. Controlled heat treatment resulted in surface crystallization of BaB4O7 in the BaO-B2O3-TeO 2 glass system. The second-order optical nonlinearities observed in these surface crystallized glasses were attributed to the distortion present in the BaB4O7 unit cell as evidenced by x-ray powder diffraction studies. A d33 value of 0.08 pm/V was obtained from the Maker fringe analysis for a surface crystallized glass.
