This paper describes blue second harmonic generation (SHG) by an organic crystal of 2-furyl methacrylic anhydride (FMA). It has short cut-off wavelength of 380 nm and SHG coefficients at 1064 nm. d3324 pm/V and d3116 pm/V. In 900 nm region 90-degree phase-matched blue SHG is observed using a Ti: Sapphire laser as a fundamental source. This crystal is not hygroscopic and does not exhibit sublimation at room temperature. Fine polishing is also possible.
