The linear and nonlinear optical susceptibilities of AA and AB stacking of the carbon nitride polymorph were calculated using the all electron full potential linear augmented plane wave method based on density functional theory. The complex part of the dielectric function is calculated using the recently modified Becke and Johnson (mBJ) approximation which gives a better optical gap in comparison to the Ceperley-Alder (CA) local density approximation, the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof generalized gradient approximation, and the Engel-Vosko generalized gradient approximation. The complex dielectric function and other optical constants like refractive index, absorption coefficient, reflectivity and energy loss function are calculated and discussed in detail. The calculated uniaxial anisotropy (-1.06 and -1.04) gives a maximum value of birefringence (-0.89 and -0.87) which increases the suitability of both AA and AB stacking for a large second harmonic generation. The calculated second order susceptibility tensor components vertical bar chi((2))(333)(omega)vertical bar at the static limit are 19.4 pm V-1 and 59.6 pm V-1 for AA and AB stacking which increases to 34.2 pm V-1 and 106.7 pm V-1 at lambda = 1064 nm. The first hyperpolarizability beta(333)(omega) for AA and AB stacking C3N4 for the dominant component vertical bar chi((2))(333)(omega)vertical bar at the static limit are calculated to be (1.6 x 10(-30) esu and 9.6 x 10(-30) esu) respectively.
