In this paper, we report the synthesis, growth and characterization of a new organic NLO single crystal of 4-amino-5-mercapto-3-[1-(4-isobutylphenyl)ethyl]-1,2,4-triazole (AMIT). The title compound is synthesized and single crystals were grown by the slow evaporation technique at room temperature. The grown crystal was characterized by powder XRD, FTIR, UV–Vis. and microhardness studies. The thermal analysis of the crystal was carried out by TGA, DTA and DSC. From DSC, the melting point of the crystal is found to be 168°C. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) provides information about the surface morphology of the crystal. The SHG efficiency has been estimated as 0.3 times that of KDP using Kurtz powder method and is found to be a phase-matchable NLO crystal.

In this paper, we report the electron irradiation effects on the properties of an organic NLO single crystal of 4-amino-5-mercapto-3-[1-(4-isobutylphenyl)ethyl]-1,2,4-triazole. The crystal was irradiated with electron beam of different doses and was characterized by powder XRD, UV–Vis, FTIR, DSC, microhardness and SHG measurements. In XRD, the peaks are shifted due to irradiation. The SHG efficiency has been found to enhance rapidly with irradiation. The investigation of the influence of electron irradiation on the surface morphology of the grown crystal reveals the formation of craters on the surface. The laser damage threshold remains constant as the dose rate increases whereas refractive index increases after irradiation.
