Single crystals of pure and Lanthanum doped L- arginine acetate (LAA) were grown successfully by slow evaporation technique. The grown crystals were confirmed by X-ray powder diffraction studies. The pure and doped crystals were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) and UV-Vis-NIR studies. It was found that the optical properties were enhanced by the incorporation of the dopant. Nonlinear optical studies reveal that the dopant has increased the efficiency of the LAA crystal.
Keywords: L-arginine acetate crystal, dopant, lanthanum, NLO.
