A polycrystalline neodymium doped lithium aluminum borate (Li2Al2(1-x) Nd2(x)B2O7, Nd:LABO) with x=0 and 0.03 has been synthesized by simple solid-state technique. The obtained Nd: LABO polycrystalline was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction and second harmonic generation efficiency measurement. The second harmonic generation efficiency of the polycrystalline material was obtained by the classic Kurtz and Perry powder technique using a fundamental wavelength 1064 nm of Nd:YAG laser in comparison with potassium dihydrogen phosphate.
