We have measured the absolute values of the second-harmonic generation (SHG) coefficient |d| for the zinc-blende II-VI semiconductors ZnTe, ZnSe, and ZnS at room temperature. The investigated spectral region of the fundamental radiation λF ranges from 520 to 1321 nm using various pulsed laser sources. In the transparent region of the II-VI semiconductors, the SHG coefficient exceeds the values of birefringent materials as ammonium dihydrogen phosphate (ADP) and potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) by one or two orders of magnitudes. Above the E0 band gap a strong dispersion of |d| is observed, showing a maximum for a second-harmonic frequency close to the E1 gap. The experimental results are compared to calculated values using a simple three-band model including spin-orbit splitting. Substantial agreement is found to the experimentally observed dispersion of the second-order nonlinear susceptibility.
