A nonlinear optical single crystal, l-arginine monohydrobromide monohydrate (LAHBr), has been implanted with 100 keV H+ ions at different ion fluences ranging from 1012 to 1015 ions/cm2 to study the property changes after implantation. Crystalline perfection of the pristine and implanted LAHBr crystals was analyzed using high-resolution X-ray diffraction. The refractive index, birefringence, mechanical sta- bility, dielectric constant and optical absorption bands induced by color centers of the implanted crystals were studied at different ion fluences and compared with pristine LAHBr single crystals.
