Third Order Nonlinear Optical Properties of Organic 4-Chloroanilinium 2-Carboxy Acetate (Caca) CrystalAuthor(s): C. Andal and P. Murugakoothan
The organic nonlinear optical (NLO) material 4-chloroanilinium 2-carboxy acetate (CACA) was grown by slow evaporation solution technique using ethanol as solvent. The crystallinity and crystal structure of the grown crystal were characterized by single and powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies. The optical transmission study was observed by UV-vis-NIR spectrum, which indicates that the grown crystal is a good optical transmission window for photonic applications. The third order nonlinear optical properties are derived from Z-scan technique.
