New Ca8-xPbxCdBi(VO4)7 with the whitlockite-Type structure were prepared by a standard solid-state method in air. Le Bail decomposition was used to determine unit-cell parameters. Structural refining was carried out by Rietveld's method. It is found that Bi3+ cations located partially in M1 and M2 sites along with calcium, while M3 site is settled in half by Pb2+-ions. Second-harmonic generation demonstrate highest non-linear optical activity and along with dielectric investigations indicate polar space group R3c.
