Amino acid family crystals exhibit excellent nonlinear optical and electrooptical properties. L-Alanine single crystal belongs to the amino acid group and has been grown by the slow evaporation solution growth technique at room temperature. The grown crystals were characterized by high-resolution X-ray diffractometry (HRXRD), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, UV-Vis, Raman spectroscopy, mass spectra analyses and density measurements. Its laser damage threshold was measured and its nonlinear optical response was tested by using a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, and the value of laser damage threshold is greater than that of potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP).
