Abstract

The ferroelectric glycine phosphite single crystals have been grown from aqueous solution by both conventional and Sankaranarayanan-Ramasamy methods. The modified channelled spectrum method has been adopted for spectral dependence of optical birefringence studies over the wavelength range of 480–620 nm, which show that both the crystals exhibit relatively high birefringence values. The photoluminescence excitation studies were carried out for the grown crystals in a wide wavelength range between 300 nm and 600 nm at 224 K. The crystals were also subjected to scanning electron microscopy analysis in order to determine the ferroelectric domain pattern configuration.

Abstract

NLO active 2-aminopyridinium 4-aminobenzoate (APAB) single crystals were successfully grown by the standard slow evaporation technique. The crystallinity of the grown crystals was analyzed through X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopic studies were also performed for the identification of different modes present in the compound. The UV-Vis absorption and transmittance spectra were recorded for the grown crystal and the optical band gap was calculated. Birefringence and etching studies were also carried out. The dielectric study showed that the dielectric constant decreased with an increase in frequency. The photoconductivity study revealed its positive photoconducting nature. Theoretical HOMO LUMO investigations were also made for the crystal. The relative SHG efficiency of the material was investigated by the Kurtz and Perry powder technique. The phase matching property of the crystal was studied through the SHG dependence of average particle sizes.
