Paper Abstract

Potassium dihydrogen phosphate KDP; (KH2PO4) and triglycine sulfate TGS; (CH2NH2COOH.H2SO4), are extensively studied ferroelectric materials, and find wide applications in electrooptic and infrared detecting devices respectively. L-arginine phosphate monohydrate (C6H14N4O2H3PO4.H2O), abbreviated as LAP, is a highly transparent monoclinic crystal with attractive properties for efficient frequency conversion of infrared lasers. Effects of doping KDP and TGS crystals with LAP are investigated. It was found in both cases that LAP affects the growth morphology and other properties. The properties of resulting crystals in terms of growth morphology, optical and mechanical properties are presented and discussed.
