Synthesis, Growth and Optical Properties of Semiorganic Non-linear Optical Single Crystal: L-Arginine Acetate

DOI: 10.1016/j.ijleo.2011.03.017


In the recent past, nonlinear optical materials are getting attention in the field fibre optic communica-tion and optical signal processing. In the present study, the title compound was successfully synthesized by conventional chemical reaction and then the single crystal was grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique. l-Arginine acetate (LAA) is semi organic non linear optical single crystal and crystal-lizes in noncentrosymmetric space group. The grown good quality single crystals have been analyzed by different characterization analyses such as powder X-ray diffraction, high resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD), Raman spectroscopy, photoluminescence, SEM, micro-hardness, thermal and birefringence analyses.

    ABSTRACT: We report the application of our newly described crystallization technique, which employs silver island films (SIFs) and microwave heating, to rapid crystallization of L-arginine acetate (LAA). Using our technique, LAA crystals (~ 1.2 mm in length) were grown from a 20 μl solution in 1 min on surface functionalized SIFs. In control experiments (glass slides and at room temperature) the growth of LAA crystals (0.1-0.3 mm) took ~ 55 min.

    ABSTRACT: L-Arginine semi-oxalate (LASO) single crystal has been grown by solution growth technique at room temperature. The crystal structure and lattice parameters were determined for the grown crystal by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Photoluminescence studies confirm the violet fluorescence emission peak at 395 nm. Optical constants like band gap, refractive index, reflectance, extinction coefficient and electric susceptibility were determined from UV-VIS-NIR spectrum. The dielectric constant, dielectric loss and ac conductivity of the compound were calculated at different temperatures and frequencies to analyze the electrical properties. The solid state parameters such as plasma energy, Penn gap, Fermi energy and polarizability were calculated to analyze second harmonic generation (SHG). Nonlinear optical property was discussed to confirm the SHG efficiency of the grown crystal.

    ABSTRACT: In this chapter we consider reactions of amino acids with inorganic and organic acids. These reactions may result in salt formation when proton transfer from acid to amino acid takes place. However, in some cases transfer does not occur. In these cases either molecular adducts may be formed or they do not react at all. We divided the salts into three groups. The first group comprises of simple salts, where there is a cation of one type of amino acid and one type of anion. The second group is made up of salts with different types of dimeric cations: (1) (A…A+), (2) (A+…A+), and (3) (A+…A2+). The third group is made up of mixed salts with different cations, different anions, or both.
