Benzil single crystals have been grown by the modified vertical Bridgman technique using the double wall ampoule with nanotranslation for the first time. The characterization studies of benzil crystals grown by both single and double wall ampoules were analyzed. The grown benzil crystal was confirmed by single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction analyses. Fourier transform infrared analysis confirms the functional groups of the grown benzil. High resolution X-ray diffraction analysis indicates the crystalline perfection of the grown crystals. The UV-Vis-NIR studies show that the grown benzil crystals cutoff wavelength is around 434 nm. The green emission of the grown benzil was identified by photoluminescence studies. The thermal property of the grown benzil was studied by thermogravimetric and differential thermal analyses. The dielectric measurements of benzil crystals were carried out with different frequencies and temperatures and the results indicate an increase in dielectric and conductivity parameters with the increase of temperature at all frequencies. The second harmonic conversion efficiency of the grown benzil was determined.
