Abstract: Potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP) crystal is an interesting non linear optical inorganic material. In this present work, KDP crystal and Indian Gooseberry extract doped KDP crystal has been grown by slow evaporation aqueous solution growth technique. The grown crystals have been investigated through various techniques viz. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy has been used for spectral analysis of grown crystals. The grown crystal have been subjected to X-ray diffraction for structural analysis. Using Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy, presence of element with weight percentage has been calculated. Nonlinear optic measurement has been used to find the SHG efficiency. Increase in KDP crystal thermal stability by an organic additive of Indian Gooseberry extract has been determined by Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA). Using Vicker’s micro hardness test the mechanical property of KDP crystal and Indian Gooseberry extract doped KDP has been studied.
