Structural, non-linear optical and dielectric properties of LPAHCl-manganese sulphate and cadmium chloride co-crystals

Open access

Abstract

Co-crystals of L-phenylalanine hydrochloride (LPAHCl) were grown by slow evaporation technique in the presence of manganese sulphate and cadmium chloride. Crystallinity of the grown crystals was confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Optical transmission spectra showed very high transmittance in the entire visible region. The cut-off wavelength was observed at 250 nm for both the crystals. The optical band gap energy was found to be 4.37 eV and 4.31 eV for the grown co-crystals of LPAHCl with MnSO4 and CdCl2, respectively. The second harmonic generation of the grown crystals was confirmed by Kurtz and Perry powder SHG method and compared with KDP. The frequency dependent dielectric properties of the co-crystals were studied at different temperatures.
