Chalcone derivative single crystal for the laser assisted applications
What is it about?
An organic nonlinear optical material which possesses third order nonlinearity has been grown by slow solvent evaporation technique at room temperature. The structural, linear optical and nonlinear optical properties of 4-[(1E)-3-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-oxoprop-1-en-1-yl]phenyl-4-methyl-benzene-1-sulfonate (4CPMS) have been studied. The 4CPMS crystal belongs to triclinic crystalline system. The linear optical absorption spectrum of 4CPMS exhibited wide transparency in the Visible / near IR region and photoluminescence spectra showed the blue light emission property. The Nd:YAG laser with 532 nm was used for analyzing nonlinear absorption coefficient and nonlinear refraction of 4CPMS material. This material exhibits reverse saturable absorption as a result of two photon absorption.
Why is it important?
Chalcones are simple to synthesize and cost effective materials.
