The chiral organic-inorganic halide perovskites (OIHPs) are vital candidates for superior nonlinear optical (NLO) effects associated with circularly polarized (CP) light. NLO in chiral materials often couples with magnetic dipole (MD) transition, as well as the conventional electric dipole (ED) transition. However, the importance of MD in NLO process of chiral OIHPs has not yet been well recognized. Here, the analysis of second harmonic generation circular dichroism (SHG-CD) provides the direct evidence that the MD contribution leads to a large anisotropic response to CP lights in chiral OIHPs, (R-/S-MBACl)2PbI4. The thin films exhibit great sensitivity to CP lights over a wide wavelength range, and the g-value reaches up to 1.57 at the wavelength where the contribution of MD is maximized. Furthermore, it is also effective as CP light generator, outputting CP-SHG with maximum g-factor of 1.76 upon the stimulation of linearly polarized light. This study deepens the understanding of the magneto-optical NLO processes in chiral systems.
