Optically good quality doped ZTS crystals with BaCl have grown by silica gel growth method at ambient temperature and their characterization have studied. The presence of functional groups of doped crystals has identified from FTIR spectra. The hardness analysis has performed with using different hardness models. Chemical Etching study has carried out in the present work. The second harmonic generation efficiency has tested from Kurtz-Perry test as the main important finding of this work. The results are reported in the paper.
