The 2-aminopyridinium succinate succinic acid (2APS) single crystal was synthesized and grown by slow evaporation method. The crystal structure has been confirmed by powder X-ray diffraction as well as single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The crystal perfection has been evaluated by high resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD). The grown crystal is transparent in the visible and near infrared region. The optical absorption edge was found to be 348 nm. The fluorescence study was carried out by spectrofluorophotometer. The thermal stability of grown crystal was analyzed by thermal gravimetric and differential thermal gravimetric (TG-DTA) analysis. Vicker's hardness study carried out at room temperature shows increased hardness while increasing the load. Laser damage threshold value was determined by Nd:YAG laser operating at 1064 nm. The grown 2APS crystal was characterized by etching studies using water as etchant.
