Dielectric and photoconductivity properties of L-arginine diiodate nonlinear optical single crystaly


Single crystal of L-arginine diiodate was grown from aqueous solution by slow evaporation technique. The crystalline nature of the material has been confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Dielectric constant and dielectric loss measurements were carried out at different temperatures and frequencies. The photoconductivity studies reveal that the crystal exhibits negative photoconductivity.
