Abstract

Glycine doped potassium thiourea chloride (PTC) crystal has been grown by slow solution evaporation technique. The dielectric studies have been employed to examine substantial improvement in dielectric constant and dielectric loss of glycine doped PTC crystal. The etching studies have been performed to investigate the surface quality of this crystal. The z-scan studies have been carried out at 632.8 nm to explore the third order nonlinear optical nature. The negative nonlinear refraction of glycine doped PTC crystal was found to be of 7.27 × 10−12 cm2/W. The origin of high magnitude of third order nonlinear optical susceptibility and reverse saturable nonlinear absorption have been investigated. The obtained results were explored to discuss the nonlinear optical applications of PTC crystal.

Abstract

Present investigation has been started to perform the comparative study of pure and glycine doped KH2PO4 (KDP) single crystals grown by most commercial slow solvent evaporation technique. The grown crystals were subjected to single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis to determine their structural parameters. The linear optical studies of pure and glycine doped KDP crystal have been undertaken within 200 nm to 1100 nm wavelength range by means of UV-Vis studies. The enhancement in second harmonic generation (SHG) efficiency of glycine doped KDP crystal has been determined using a standard Kurtz-Perry powder test. The dielectric measurements have been carried out to explore the impact of glycine dopant on dielectric constant and dielectric loss of KDP crystal. The surface growth habitat and etch pit density of glycine doped KDP crystal have been evaluated using the results of microscopic etching studies. In light of obtained results the suitability of glycine doped KDP crystal for device applications has been discussed.
