In this work, the authors have grown good-quality single crystals of l-ornithine monohydrochloride (LOHCL), an organic nonlinear optical material, in the aqueous solution by the slow cooling technique. N5+ ion irradiation of three different doses (i.e. 1 x 10(16), 5 x 10(16) and 1 x 10(17) ions/cm(2)) at room temperature was done on the cut and polished crystal specimen of appropriate size from the grown crystal. A detailed study of FT-Raman spectroscopic was carried out to see the effect of irradiation on structure and vibrational modes of the LOHCL crystal. The results revealed that there is no structural modification even at high doses except the variation in peak intensity, which indicates that the grown crystals of LOHCL have good stability and also confirms that the nitrogen ions do not substitute into the crystal lattice. The UV-Vis-near-infrared spectroscopic study was done on all the samples to see the effect of irradiation and various optical parameters such as transmittance (similar to 50-70%), absorption coefficient, energy band gap (similar to 4.75-4.96 eV), extinction coefficient, refractive index (similar to 1.31-1.24), optical permittivity (similar to 1.7-1.6) and susceptibility (similar to 0.7-0.6). The calculated optical parameters were found to vary with change in doses.
